Personalised Henschke Hill of Grace 2018 14.5% 750ml Gift Boxed

Tasting Notes:
Deep ruby with ruby hues. Ethereal and exotic aromas of blackberry and blood plum with five-spice, star anise, clove, fennel seed, cinnamon and black pepper and more subtle hints of bay leaf and crushed flowering herbs. The palate is plush, deep, complex and powerful, with a core of supple blackberry and blueberry fruit laden with spice and pepper and beautifully balanced by fine acidity resolving into a long and elegant finish of rolling, velvety tannins.

100% Shiraz from pre-phylloxera material brought from Europe in the mid-1800s and grown on the Henschke Hill of Grace Vineyard in the Eden Valley wine region, manage with organic and biodynamic practices.

Matured in 20% new and 80% seasoned (83% French, 17% American) oak hogsheads for 18 months prior to blending and bottling.


A moderately wet winter combined with average spring conditions man that vines grew well in the mild weather. Ideal flowering conditions in late spring or early summer led to the potential for near-average yields. Late December became warm and dry, ensuring healthy canopies with low disease pressure. The summer months of January and February were typically warm and dry, characterized by above-average overnight temperatures. The old vineyards coped well with the warm nights their deep roots able to withstand the warming and drying effect on the topsoil, maturing the balance crops as autumn approached. March and April provided light and warmth to the Eden Valley which led to full and balanced maturity being achieved across all grape varieties. With warm sunny days and cool nights, the dry autumn guaranteed that pristinely healthy grapes arrived in the fermenters. All in all, the 2018 vintage will be considered as a standout of the decade. Shiraz is certainly one of the highlights of the season fittingly so in the year we celebrated our 150th anniversary of family winemaking.
