Henschke Hill of Grace 2015

Exclusive: Henschke Hill of Grace 2015

QWines are pleased to present Australia’s most revered single-vineyard wine: Henschke Hill of Grace Shiraz.

This long awaited vintage is the 54th release (58th vintage) of Henschke Hill of Grace and has been called 'the vintage graced by the luminous moon'.

This evocative name originates from the extraordinary harvesting process for this vintage. The grapes were handpicked at the end of March 2015, timed so that the final pick took place a week before the harvest moon of Easter - a technique harking back to ancient wisdom which noted the benefits of harvesting crops around the full moon. It would seem this may have been based in truth, as the yield of the 2015 vintage produced exquisite fruit with extraordinary flavour, purity and acid balance, with the potential for excellent ageing.

The composition of this wine is 100 percent hand-picked, ‘old-vine’ shiraz, vinified in traditional Henschke open-top fermenters and matured in 86 percent French and 14 percent American (one-third new, two-thirds seasoned) oak hogsheads for 18 months prior to blending and bottling on-site.

Regarding flavour, it is best described by Stephen Henschke as "intensely concentrated, with plum, blackberry, anise and signature five spice flavours, while enchantingly elegant and refined in its structure”.

Awarded 100 points by Robert Parker, this is an outstanding investment piece - as with ideal cellaring, Henschke Hill of Grace 2015 can be confidentially matured for 30+ years.

Every vintage from the ‘ancient’, single-vineyard Hill of Grace is a limited release and QWines is one of few dealers in the UK selected to sell this wine. Stock is extremely limited and is expected to sell out quickly.

This wine is not available on our website and is available through enquiry only.
