Henschke Hill of Grace Shiraz is Australia’s greatest single vineyard wine. Its fame is connected profoundly with the work of Stephen and Prue Henschke. This intensely perfumed, concentrated and velvet textured wine evokes a family tradition, extreme craftsmanship and a beautiful inimitable aesthetic. It belongs to an unfolding and endless story that evokes the soul of this Australian age.
The vineyard was established at Parrot Hill in the Eden Valley (around 1860) by Nicolaus Stanitzki and has since been handed down through the generations to the Henschke family.
Deep crimson. Intense chocolate/blackberry aromas with coffee/soy/meaty complexity. Very generous but powerfully structured palate with core of deepset blackberry fruit flavours, pronounced tannins, underlying savoury oak, finishing firm but with endless flavour length. Langton's (2002).
