Wine of the Week AU

Henschke Hill of Grace 2013, Eden Valley, AUD $825

This single-vineyard wine was first bottled in 1958 and has only skipped four vintages. Less massive than Laird or Grange, its feature is tremendous complexity, detail and charm. Aromas of violet, sage, raspberry, aniseed, earth and mixed spices. It has a glossy, silken texture, at once fruit-sweet and savoury, with awesome concentration and persistence. (Vino-Lok)
