    (all shiraz): Inky ruby. Explosive spice- and smoke-accented black and blue fruits and incense on the intensely perfumed nose. Palate-coating, very primary blackcurrant, floral pastille and fruitcake flavors reach every corner of the palate, with juicy acidity providing lift and verve. Smoothly combines power and vivacity, and finishes with outstanding clarity and thrust, the supple tannins building slowly. I suspect that this remarkable, deeply concentrated shiraz will still be alive and kicking a couple decades from now.

    Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the nose on the 2009 Hill of Grace is a little closed, though it reveals notes of warm black plums, blackberry coulis and cloves with subtle nuances of dried Provence herbs, forest floor and lavender. Medium to full-bodied, it possesses layers of medium to full-bodied black fruit and earth-laced flesh elegantly structured by a medium to firm level of finely grained tannins, nicely balanced acid and a long finish. Drink it now to 2026+.

  • 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.
