2009 Hill of Grace Shiraz Henschke



2009 was a stunning vintage for one of Australia’s great wines, the Henschke Hill of Grace Shiraz. Hugely scored by critics across the board, it cements the lofty reputation of this world-class wine and is well worth adding to the collection.

 

The small vineyard from where the Hill of Grace is taken is one of the planet’s finest plots for growing grapes. The vines are between 50 and 150 years old and the complexity of the fruit as a result of this heritage means that very few wines can match it for richness and complexity.

 

The vineyard’s 400m altitude keeps freshness in the wine, giving it crucial lift and balance to counter the power and depth that have made this cuvee, “one of Australia’s legendary icons” (Parker).

This sings like a chorus that never runs out of breath. Layers of currant and dark plum fruit harmonize with black walnut, licorice, smoke and coffee notes, weaving through the long and immensely expressive finish. Has depth and great presence. Shiraz. Best from 2018 through 2030. (Jun 2015) www.winespectator.com

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+. ||Imported by Negociants USA, Napa, CA; tel. (707) 259-0993 eRobertParker.com.February, 2014
