Bottled and aged in the Henschke cellar for museum release. Deep ruby with bright red hues. Beautifully fragrant and ethereal aromas of boysenberry, blueberry, black forest, bramble and five spice, with underlying notes of violet, sandalwood, leather and cedar. A plush and concentrated palate of black plum, cherry, blue fruits are layered with sage, star anise, exotic spice and black pepper. Velvety, fine-grained tannins deliver a long and elegant finish.

We are indeed lucky to get a 2008 Hill of Grace from the Museum & Rare program this year, which is largely due to the paltry volumes of the current 2019 wine (due to low yields). It was a stinking hot vintage in the Barossa. Prue Henschke had been farming the site biodynamically for a few years by that stage, employing composts and mulching practices that had a positive impact in a stressful, hot year. That and she got the grapes off Hill of Grace before the major heat event. It is in a terrific place with gentle red fruits and layers of complex fine spice, sage, leather, tobacco and intriguing tertiary characters coming into play along with gentle oak spice and a dab of milk chocolate. Comforting, graceful and long of finish. The interplay of characters is constantly evolving in the glass and it is in great form at this stage of its evolution. – Dave Brookes, Halliday Wine Companion, 98 points
