Dark purple. Spicy and racy and with real energy. Dry finish but lovely five-spice notes. very characteristic of the vineyard. Maybe you could even drink this with food now?

“According to Stephen Henschke, the 2008 Hill of Grace Shiraz was among the earlier picks that vintage, avoiding the worst of the heatwave that followed. It was never the most elegant or perfumed vintage, but it’s rich and creamy, loaded with mocha and blackberry flavors. Full-bodied and intense, it remains rather big and muscular, with a slightly coarse but tremendously long finish. It could go another 20 years in a cool cellar.”
