The 58th vintage of Australia’s most renowned single vineyard wine – Henschke Hill of Grace (A$865) – was released in early May. 2015 was an exceptional year for Eden Valley shiraz, with a mild, dry spring resulting in fruit with excellent flavour concentration and brilliant natural acidity. Grapes were hand-picked under a full moon in mid- to late-March. The 2015 Hill of Grace conveys the excellence of both vintage and vineyard, showing intense black fruit flavours, tobacco, char, star anise and violets. It’s a wine of effortlessness and singularity and will reward careful cellaring for at least 30 years.
