99 Points Robert Parker

Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2012 Shiraz Hill of Grace is a little reticent on the nose to begin, opening out to a somewhat paradoxically tantalizing black forest cake, beef dripping, fertile loam and tree bark nose with hints of black pepper, Marmite, bay leaves, eucalyptus, licorice and baker’s chocolate. The medium to full-bodied palate is a wonderfully intricate mélange of mineral, savory, dark fruits and spice layers, framed by velvety tannins and refreshing acidity, finishing epically. This is a truly great Hill of Grace that has just entered the first stage of its drinking window and should continue to develop beautifully over the next 25+ years.

99 Points James Halliday

It's been worth the wait, and then some, for this is a flawless Hill of Grace. It's an old cliche, but it's unavoidable: it is the ultimate iron fist in a velvet glove. While the fruit remains supreme, there are savoury tannins to support the 50-year cellaring potential of the wine. It is bottled under screwcap, not the elegant Vino-Lok of past vintages, because you want the most secure closure for ultra-long cellaring. The wine? Perfect colour, fragrant dark cherry/berry aromas and flavours, positive tannin and French oak support, great aftertaste. Drink to 2062.

99 Points Tyson Stelzer

In walking the ancient vines of the isolated Hill of Grace vineyard during harvest, I discovered a personality to this place articulated in its wines quite unlike any other. There is an effortless, indeed graceful and calm purity to this vintage that captures the essence of this historic and celebrated place. It exudes a grand, expansive complexity and yet upholds restraint and elegance, alive with the classic Chinese fine spice that is Hill of Grace, the dark chocolate of Barossa shiraz and a sage leaf note that Henschke says is true to 2012. Tannins are gorgeously fine, intricately silky and yet commanding and tense, stringing out a finish of profound line and length, backed with the brilliantly taut acid line that defines 2012. Approachable and irresistible now, don’t underestimate the grand longevity of this season. Drink 2032 - 2052.
