99 points Wine Advocate
Medium garnet in color, the 2010 Shiraz Hill of Grace reveals a slightly reticent yet beguiling nose of kirsch, dried mulberries and plum preserves with nuances of star anise, potpourri, cloves, dusty earth and menthol. Medium to full-bodied with youthfully taut, mouth-filling perfumed berry preserves and exotic spice flavors, the fruit is well framed by rounded, polished tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with incredible length. It could still benefit from 2-4 years in bottle before entering its drinking window but is already stunning. (LPB) (6/2015)98 points Decanter
First made in 1958, Australia’s most famous single vineyard wine was originally planted during the 1860s by Nicolaus Stanitzki, a Henschke ancestor. A fine, intricate web of tannins harnesses equally intricate layers of flavour which build steadily. Juniper, dried herbs, liquorice, charcuterie and a hint of eucalyptus is filled out by sweet, juicy briar on the attack, creamy, mocha-edged framboise to the mid-palate and deep set, very persistent blackcurrant. Very long, and very fluid. (SA) (6/2017)
