Exclusively old vine Shiraz from pre phylloxera material imported by early German settlers. One of the most evocative labels in the world of wine, Hill of Grace vineyard is set on a unique part of the Moculta landscape called Parrot Hill, an isolated spot where gentle protected slopes nestle against the rocky Boundary Road ridge to the east. Brought into the Henschke estate in 1951, Hill of Grace experienced an exceptional growing season for vintage 1996, average winter rainfall, a mild spring with excellent flowering, dry and cool for summer. The cool conditions allowed for slow ripening with excellent flavour development. Matured in new French and American hogsheads for eighteen months.
