Henschke Hill of Grace Shiraz 2017
Always one of the most eagerly anticipated releases of the year and this one certainly does not disappoint. Wonderful wine and a worthy addition to the long line of brilliant Hill of Grace. Deep maroon in colour with intensity and balance, freshness and vitality. Enticingly fragrant with spices, red fruits, warm earth, dry herbs and more. After a day, there were darker notes, more of the warm earth tones, tobacco leaf characters and dark chocolate. Incredible length and balance, the silkiest of tannins with good complexity already evident, balanced acidity supporting the wine right through. Everything is superbly balanced and integrated. Seamless and lingering, this will age and improve for decades. A superb wine.
