Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Vinous – 93

From a heatwave vintage comes this decadent but shapely 2008 Shiraz Hill of Grace. It immediately delivers blackberry, chocolate and new leather notes with tar and cassis touches. The palate follows suit, bold and dry, with flavors of licorice, dried spices and roasted meats before a long and muscular finish. The 2008 is an outlier, but the quality is undeniable.

Anticipated maturity: 2032-2048

Robert Parker – 96

“According to Stephen Henschke, the 2008 Hill of Grace Shiraz was among the earlier picks that vintage, avoiding the worst of the heatwave that followed. It was never the most elegant or perfumed vintage, but it’s rich and creamy, loaded with mocha and blackberry flavors. Full-bodied and intense, it remains rather big and muscular, with a slightly coarse but tremendously long finish. It could go another 20 years in a cool cellar.” [Joe Czerwinski, 31/08/2018]

Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038

JancisRobinson.com – 19.0

Dark purple. Spicy and racy and with real energy. Dry finish but lovely five-spice notes. very characteristic of the vineyard. Maybe you could even drink this with food now? [12/03/2013]

Anticipated maturity: 2018-2042
