The Henschke family arrived inn Australia from Silesia in 1841. In the 1860s Johann Christian Henschke bought some land in Keyneton for the express purpose of growing grapes for wine. IN 1891 Johann's sone bought what is now known as the Hill of Grace vineyard. From this vineyard comes one of Australia's very best red wines. Today Hill of Grace is still made from vines planted in the 1860s.
"Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2007 Hill of Grace has a dusty earth and warm mulberry character with touches of iodine, cinnamon stick, sage, bacon and aniseed. The phenolics are a little unresolved, but this is still a superb wine with medium levels of chewy tannins, balanced acid and just enough spicy fruit holding on through the long finish." Lisa Perrotti-Brown
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
