Winemaker Notes

Very deep crimson in colour. The concentrated aromas are sweet, ripe and spicy with plums, prunes and blackberries complexed by hints of tar, anise, cedar and bacon. The rich, complex palate is dense, exotic and concentrated with black fruits. Beautifully balanced with great texture, excellent depth and length, finishing with soft velvety tannins.

"Supple, round and distinctive for the way it balances gamy, meaty notes with rich fruit and spice. Offers black cherry, dark plum and clove character in abundance, while keeping its elements in deft harmony. Really stretches the flavor spectrum. A very special wine."

Supple, round and distinctive for the way it balances gamy, meaty notes with rich fruit and spice. Offers black cherry, dark plum and clove character in abundance, while keeping its elements in harmony. Really stretches the flavor spectrum. A very special wine. Best from 2010 through 2025. 70 cases imported.

RP 93
The Wine Advocate

The 2001 Shiraz Hill of Grace (100% Shiraz aged 18 months in 100% new French and American oak) is not a blockbuster, but rather a surprisingly elegant, full-flavored Shiraz offering notes of mocha, white chocolate, pepper, blackberry liqueur, and cassis. Fleshy and earthy, with outstanding purity, richness, and overall symmetry, it is a complex, more evolved example of this cuvee. It should age nicely for another 12-15 years. 93+

Henschke
The Henschke family have been making wine since Johann Christian Henschke planted a small vineyard at Keyneton in Eden Valley in 1862. Cyril Henschke pioneered varietal and single-vineyard wines, including the world-famous Shiraz wines, Hill of Grace and Mount Edelstone in the 1950s. Fifth-generation Stephen Henschke and his wife Prue are one of the most lauded winemaking teams in the world, and international awards recognize the complementary nature of their roles, Stephen as winemaker and Prue as viticulturist. To protect their vineyards for future generations they have implemented an inspiring nursery program to preserve the genetic heritage of their oldest pre-phylloxera vines as well as continuing to lead the way with organic and biodynamic principals to enrich their land.

Champagne

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, Champagne is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to be labeled ‘Champagne’ within the EU and many New World countries, a wine must originate in this northeastern region of France and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide. Well-drained limestone chalk soil defines much of the region, lending a mineral component to the wines. The climate here is marginal—ample acidity is a requirement for sparkling wine, so overripe grapes are to be avoided. Weather differences from year to year create significant variation between vintages, and in order to maintain a consistent house style, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled varietally, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, delicacy, and elegance, as well as bright and lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit, and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body, and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while one comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’
