    Deep garnet-brick colored, the 1992 Hill of Grace exudes aromas of dried mulberries, blackberry preserves, iron ore, menthol and lavender. Well-structured with medium-firm chewy tannins, crisp acid and muscular fruit, it has a long and earthy finish. It is mature and holding strong.

    Earthy, almost decadent-tasting, but there are plenty of ripe plum, prune and black cherry flavors to accompany the gamy streak and hints of black pepper in this distinctive wine. Impressive now, better in 2000 or 2002.

    Still hint of purple. Very, very sweet on the nose and fruity rather than minerals or veg. A charmer though not one with great depths. Good structure underneath. This wine has a lot packed in there for future development actually. The palate is much more interesting than the nose suggests, and there is still some tannin to be resolved.

    Outstanding. Still young.

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.
