Henschke, Hill of Grace Vineyard, Eden Valley 2018


Case Format: 3x75cl

The Eden Valley region was established by Charles Crane in 1866 around the nearby North Para River system and is home to the most renowned Henschke vineyards: Hill of Grace and Mount Edelstone.

Eden Valley is a deep ruby with ruby hues. Ethereal and exotic aromas of blackberry and blood plum with five-spice, star anise, clove, fennel seed, cinnamon and black pepper, and more subtle hints of bay leaf and crushed flowering herbs. The palate is plush, deep, complex and powerful, with a core of supple blackberry and blueberry fruit laden with spice and pepper, and beautifully balanced by fine acidity resolving into a long and elegant finish of rolling, velvety tannins.



Jancis Robinson

Mid lustrous, shaded crimson. Subtle nose of minerals and earth with quite a sharp palate entry. Lots of ripe-but-refreshing fruit suggests theres hardly any tannin here at all. Its somehow more comfortable and settled – less sharp – than Hill of Roses 2018, with notes of molasses but nothing heavy nor obviously sweet. Wonderfully long and refreshing. It does taste like a vineyard in a bottle! Im sure Stephen H works awfully hard in the winery but this almost tastes as though he doesnt. Difficult to know how long this will still offer great drinking; the Henschkes suggest 30+ years from vintage.

James Suckling

A superb and harmonious Hill of Grace with wonderful complexity on the nose that keeps bringing you back to the glass. Minty blueberries, red berries and some blackberries. Heather and violets with beautifully integrated spices of peppercorn and five spice. Graphite, salt chocolate and cigar box, too. Intense, lush and concentrated. This is barely full-bodied but the concentration is simply effortless and the flavors grow on the palate. Super silky and svelte tannins glide through the even and cohesive palate. Persistent finish, lasting for more than two minutes. Let it breathe if you decide to open it now, but it will sleep well in your cellar, too. Screw cap.
