Winemaker Notes

Dark crimson in color. A complex, spicy nose of tar, anise, blackberries and blueberries with hints of five spice, vanilla and cedar. The sweet, lush and fleshy palate displays great depth and texture, with excellent length and intensity and fine, velvety tannins.

WS 99
Wine Spectator
Rich, polished and absolutely seamless, this is harmonious and expressive, with tremendous depth. Offers licorice-scented blackberry, black cherry, pomegranate and dusky spices in such a cohesive package that it's hard to pick them out. Hints of mineral and spice add nuance to the finish. Will only get better with cellaring. Not imported into the U.S. Best from 2010 through 2028.
RP 98
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Henschke’s flagship is the famous Hill of Grace Shiraz. The 2003 Hill of Grace has sensational aromatics, unique and very sexy, with elements of toasty oak, smoke, violets, pepper, espresso, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. On the palate, this Shiraz is surprisingly subtle and elegant with layered complex flavors, superb concentration, and well-concealed tannins. It will evolve for a decade and drink well through 2035. It remains one of Australia’s benchmarks for Shiraz.

Higher in elevation and topographically more dramatic than the Barossa Valley floor, Eden Valley abuts it to its south and east. While it is a bit of an extension of Barossa, Eden Valley is topographically different than the pastoral Barossa Valley, and is composed of rocky hills and eucalyptus groves.

Recognizing Eden Valley’s potential with Riesling in the 1960s and 70s, producers started to move their Riesling production from Barossa to these better sites where schist soils on hilltops would produce more steely, tart and age-worthy examples. A most famous site, planted by Colin Gramp, called Steingarten, today produces one of the most outstanding Australian Rieslings. Youthful Eden Valley Rieslings express floral, grapefruit and mineral, while with time in the bottle, they become increasingly toasty and complex.

Riesling isn’t the only grape the region can grow; undeniably at lower altitudes Shiraz does very well. Mount Edelstone is a notable vineyard as well as the Hill of Grace, which boasts healthy Shiraz vines well over 100 years old. This is the only Australian region where Merlot has a made a name for itself and Chardonnay can be spectacular, particularly from the High Eden subregion in the southern valley.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
