Hill of Grace is without doubt Australia's most famous and sought-after 'single vineyard' wine.

Its origins date back to 1860, when Nicolaus Stanitzki planted the first vines in the rural Eden Valley, near the 'Gnadenberg' church. ‘Gnadenberg' in German means 'Hill of Grace'. In 1891, Paul Gotthard Henschke took over the vineyard and it remained in the hands of the family ever since.

In 1958, Cyril Henschke bottled the first 'Hill of Grace', made from almost 100-year-old Shiraz vines. Even today, these ungrafted vines proudly remain in the Australian sun and are lovingly cared for by the 6th generation of Henschkes, all according to biodynamic principles.

Year in, year out this wine is highly regarded by all wine lovers in the world. In 2010 it scored no less than 99/100 by Robert Parker and 100/100 at Falstaff!

"The 2010 Shiraz Hill of Grace reveals a slightly reticent yet beguiling nose of kirsch, dried mulberries and plum preserves with nuances of star anise, potpourri, cloves, dusty earth and menthol. Medium to full-bodied with youthfully taut, mouth-filling perfumed berry preserves and exotic spice flavors, the fruit is well framed by rounded, polished tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with incredible length." – 99RP
