Henschke Hill Of Grace 2008
96 Points Robert Parker
A very rare and unique, delineated, historic single vineyard that lies opposite a beautiful old church called Gnadenberg , meaning Hill of Grace. These Shiraz grapes from pre-phyllloxera clippings brought from Europe by early settlers in the mid 1800’s are some of the world’s vines.
“Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2008 Hill of Grace has a slightly closed nose before giving subtle notes of ripe black cherries, blackberries and violets with hints of cedar, pepper, green tea and cumin. There's a slight raisin character on the full-bodied palate with crisp acid, dense fruit and firm, grainy tannins, finishing long. Drink it from 2017 to 2035+”
