1991 Henschke Hill of Grace Shiraz - 95 Pts!
Other than the top cuvees of Penfolds' Grange and the old vine Grenache and Astralis from Clarendon Hills no Australian wines are richer than these offerings from Henschke - a winery that gets my nod as one of Australia's two or three finest producers. Each of these wines coats the mouth with glorious levels of jammy fruit extract glycerin and silky tannin. They are all dense ruby/purple-colored full-bodied and capable of lasting at least a decade and in the case of the 1991 Shiraz Hill of Grace possibly 20+ years.The 1991 Shiraz Hill of Grace Keyneton Vineyard is the most backward of the Henschke wines with an earthy minerality and explosive black fruits the likes of which are often seen in northern Rhone Valley wines made from ancient vines. This huge broodingly backward muscular brawny immensely concentrated yet formidably endowed wine requires another 4-5 years of cellaring it should keep for 15-20 years. These are awesome examples of what Australia is capable of producing. RP
