97+ Points - The Wine Advocate
"Medium to deep garnet-purple in colour, the 2010 Mount Edelstone is a single-vineyard Shiraz showing a little reticent at this youthful stage, though it gives delicate black and red fruit aromas that fan out with air to reveal kirsch, red currant jelly, mulberries and Chinese Five Spice notes alongside hints of dusty earth and potpourri. The palate is led by its commendable structure at this stage, with firm, grainy tannins and very lively acid to support the tight-knit fruit. It finishes long and layered. Consider drinking this 2016 to 2026+." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer
Henschke is located in the Eden Valley in South Australia and is a remarkable vineyard steeped in history. Johann Christian Henschke settled on the farm over 165 years ago and began producing wine on the rich, red, brown earth. Stephen and Prue, a husband and wife team and the fifth generation, now manage the estate and produce one of the best Australian single vineyard Shiraz, Hill of Grace.
A unique, delineated, historic vineyard that lies opposite an old Lutheran church, which is named after a region in Silesia called Gnadenberg, meaning Hill of Grace. With vines dating back to 1860 and biodynamic vineyard management, Stephen and Prue are producing wines of intense colour and flavour.
Recently, Hill of Grace 2012 was awarded ‘Wine of the Year’ and ‘Best Shiraz’ by distinguished Australian wine critic James Halliday.
