  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

    Deep brown in color, the 1989 Hill of Grace has an appealing nose of dried cherries, fruit cake and cloves with underlying dried lavender, thyme and salami hints. Medium-bodied with tons of savory and dried berry flavor layers, it has bright acidity, a medium level of rounded tannins and a long finish with a herbal lift. It is mature.

    Much more evolved on the nose than the 1990. Rich and mellow. Definite sweetness and power - even a hint of syrupiness. Tannins long since gone to reveal an opulent, flattering rather than very fine or elegant wine.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

    Firm and focused, with beautifully articulated cherry, berry and spice aromas and flavors that are harmonious and generous on the long finish. Drinkable now through 1996. 3,000 cases made.

The heritage of Henschke spans 5 generations and 130 years. It is one of the longest and most well-established names in the Barossa Valley, with fifth generation winemaker Stephen Henschke and his wife Prue continuing the exceptional tradition of producing quality wines. Close ties to the vineyards and land, as well as minimal intervention in the cellar, are what make the wines consistent winners among critics and consumers alike. While well-known for the "Hill of Grace" bottling, Henschke also produces a variety of other Shiraz and white varieties, almost entirely under screw cap. These wines promote the unique character of the Eden Valley region of the Barossa Range, which is a honeycomb of site climates with its river valleys and undulating hills. The wines are ready to enjoy upon release, but have such a beautiful balance of fruit, structure and acidity that they are worthy candidates for cellaring.
