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.

Professional Reviews

96/100
Wine Companion
Dark crimson. Spice and sweetness on the nose - almost cheesy - with quite a drying finish. Much more beguiling than many - and very much no-prisoners-Australian style. Just a little dry and tarry on the finish.
, James Halliday Issue: Oct 2005



95/100
Wine Spectator
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.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Oct 15 2006

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Dark ruby. Suave, complex aromas of blackcurrant, kirsch, licorice, mocha, toasty oak spices, cured meat and succulent herbs, with a hint of graphite. Lush and round, with deep, concentrated dark berry flavors accented by smoky, spicy oak, licorice candy and a suggestion of vanilla. This is surprisingly open and seamless, the gentle tannins absorbed by the sweet fruit and musky animal and herb flavors. The very long finish features penetrating blackberry and creme de cassis flavors, with suggestions of oak spice and smoked meat sneaking in late. Incidentally, this was the only Henschke wine I tasted this year bottled under cork.

93+/100
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.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #161
