HENSCHKE Hill of Grace Duo Museum Release Gift Box 2005 & 2006
“The atmospheric and beautiful Henschke Hill of Grace Shiraz is Australia’s most famous single vineyard wine.” – Langton’s
The Langton’s Classification of Australian Wine bestowed an “exceptional” ranking upon Hill of Grace placing it alongside the likes of Penfolds Grange. For those not familiar with Langton’s it’s an auction house that created a classification that has become the honour roll of Australia’s top fine wines. The wines are judged on the demand in the market over at least a decade rather than simply relying on one critic’s opinion on a single vintage tasting. So when they say this is one of Australia’s true greats they really know what they’re talking about.
This Museum Release Gift Box provides an opportunity to own not one but two vintages of this spectacular wine. Hill of Grace is a pure Shiraz matured in new French and American oak for 18 months or more. Nestled within a sleek black wooden box you’ll discover the following two high-scoring wines:
- 1 x Henschke Hill of Grace Shiraz 2005 750ml – 99 points “Deep garnet with a hint of purple the 2005 Hill of Grace offers a wonderful perfume of kirsch red currant preserves and raspberry coulis with hints of cinnamon stick cloves and orange peel. Medium to full-bodied it is very elegant yet intense in the mouth with a lively acid line medium-firm very finely grained tannins and a very long finish. Approachable now and should drink to 2040+.” – Lisa Perrotti-Brown Wine Advocate
- 1 x Henschke Hill of Grace Shiraz 2006 750ml – 97+ points “The deep garnet purple coloured 2006 Hill of Grace presents an incredibly perfumed ethereal nose of warm crushed blackberries rose petals kirsch violets cinnamon stick mace fennel seed eucalypt and damp earth. Very crisp and rich in the mouth with medium-firm velvety tannins and tons of fleshy fruit it displays opulent layers of warm berries and spice in the finish. This is staggeringly beautiful wine and delectably approachable even at this very early stage.” – Lisa Perrotti-Brown Wine Advocate
