The Henschke Hill of Grace Shiraz 2013 boasts a very deep crimson in colour. Rich and beguiling aromas of blackberry, blueberry and dark plum, followed by signature exotic five spice, star anise, and sage, with underlying nuances of beef stock and dark cedar. Intense and layered, the complex palate bursts with a dense, pure core of sweet spiced plum and blackberry, coated by firm yet integrated, fine velvety tannins which draw away to an extraordinarily long finish and lingering flavours of dried, sweet spices.
This wine is 100% Shiraz from pre-phylloxera material brought from Europe by the early settlers in the mid-1800s and grown on the Hill of Grace vineyard in the Eden Valley wine region.
‘We have chosen ‘Faith’ to describe our 55th vintage, Henschke Hill of Grace 2013. We certainly needed it as we watched and waited for desperately needed rains to carry the precious yield of our dry-grown vines through to harvest. This is a vintage graced not just by our faith in this brief moment in time, but by the generations who came before us in the gardens of Eden.’ – Stephen Henschke
