Johann Christian Henschke emigrated from Silesia to settle and farm in the Eden Valley. By the time third generation Paul Alfred Henschke took over the reins in 1914, the famous Hill of Grace Shiraz vines were over fifty years of age. The famous vines were planted around the 1860s by Nicolaus Stanitzki, to rich alluvial soils in a shallow fertile valley just northwest of the current Henschke wineworks. Opposite the property stands a beautiful old Lutheran Church named Gnadenberg, built of local field stone, it literally means Hill of Grace. Following a traditional open fermentation, Hill of Grace is treated to an extended maturation in completely new French and American oak hogsheads before assemblage.

Henschke Hill of Grace 1978
Eden Valley
Hill of Grace came delivered a majestic and long lived Shiraz in vintage 1978. The growing season was dry but temperate, unhampered by environmental vagaries, the old vine fruit was allowed to develop to textbook ripeness, the finished wine represents a classic Australian red of richness and longevity. Honest, earthy and tarry, an almost porty ripe Shiraz, vintage 1978 initially exhibited fleshiness and lively sweet fruit combined with a firm tannic backbone. An honest and generous edition with integrated oak and supple finish.

The meticulous Henschke viticultural management has seen a new breath of life into the ancient, venerable Hill of Grace vineyard. The original double storey cellar, built into the side of the hill in time for the 1868 vintage, has been added to throughout the generations. Now covered with ivy, the stone building retains an old world charm with its open fermenters and winemaking memorabilia on display. Grapes are picked early to mid April at a sugar level of around 24Brix, there is always a good acid/pH balance from the Hill of Grace vineyard. Unique and exceptional fruit, the anthocyanins, colour pigments, in the berries are very high, which perhaps offers a clue to the very high quality of the Hill of Grace Shiraz.

Henschke Hill of Grace 1979
Eden Valley
Hill of Grace, the name of the vineyard and the wine that has so captured the heart of Shiraz cohorts around the world, shared an unfavourable growing season alongside most of Australia's winegrowing regions. Hot and dry throughout summer, a prolonged wet autumn, tested the ancient vines, and the superlative skill of the Henschke growers. Nevertheless, 1979 produced a delicate and refined Hill of Grace, worthy of the name's stature. A lighter, sweeter, pleasantly plump and jammy wine with ripe, brambly fruit, oak influence and supple, soft tannins.

Full bodied, magnificently concentrated, pure, and delineated, the distinguished and compelling Hill of Grace is acclaimed internationally as one of the world's great Shiraz.

Henschke Hill of Grace 1980
Eden Valley
Henschke is one of the longest established names in the Barossa. Johann Christian Henschke purchased land for a farm at Keyneton in 1861, after fleeing religious persecution in Silesia. He planted a small vineyard and an orchard. After initially making wine for family consumption, he produced his first commercial vintage in 1868. Each generation built upon the reputation for quality, but it was fourth generation Cyril Alfred Henschke, who in 1958, created the wine that has most captured the wine world's imagination, Hill of Grace.

Henschke Hill of Grace 1981
Eden Valley
A growing season which proved too hot and dry for most vineyards across South Australia, budburst and fruit set were a disappointment, bringing softer yields which continued to diminish throughout the summer. The Henschke wines from 1981 stood out brilliantly, as traditional viticulture and generations of accumulated skill make an essential contribution. Hill of Grace was spared the excesses ofe vintage, yielding exquisite grapes with ripe tannin levels, ideal for flavour development. A genuine, but rare class effort from the vexed 1981 vintage.

The various old vine blocks of Shiraz at Hill of Grace are picked at different times according to ripeness and maturity, to be treated as individual lots. Keeping parcels separate allows for variations of soil types, vigor and age of vines, all of which produce different profiles which become a part of the completed wine. In some years, vines gowing on the ancient Grandfathers block, planted to very deep soils, can have quite big bunches and big berries due to moisture retention. The fruit of House Block, which can be picked anywhere from one to three weeks earlier, can be rather small and the berries quite tiny. Segregation of parcels from picking to assemblage, represents the ultimate in site selection.

Henschke Hill of Grace 1982
Eden Valley
A favourable summer, experiencing warm and even temperatures was preceded by much welcomed rains, which nourished the Henschke vineyards early in the growing season. The vines were highly stimulated by the superb conditions of vintage 192, unfettered by climactic setbacks, Shiraz ripened beautifully, the batches of fruit came in on time and in remarkable shape. Henschke remain dedicated to the sustainable management of the grand old vines, applying regimens of viticulture which would have been familiar to forebears, a century and a half ago.

Australia's oldest vineyards, dating back to the painstaking efforts of early pioneers and Lutheran settlers, carry an aura of wonder about them, the gnarled and free form shapes of the wizzened old vines are rarely seen in other plant species of such age. For wine industry pilgrims, visting for a tour of duty from destinations afar and round the globe, Hill of Grace is a viticultural mecca. Industry savant Hugh Johnson made reference to the pre phylloxera vines, grown to ancient rootstock, which deliver harvests of the most precious fruit to be found anywhere in the new world.

Henschke Hill of Grace 1983
Eden Valley
A disastrous vintage across most winegrowing regions, vintage 1983 was one which most Australian winemakers would rather forget. Wildfires such as the cataclysmic Ash Wednesday, hail, drought and heat, it all happened in 1983. Somehow, the Henschke vineyards, cocooned around the higher Eden Valley ranges, seemed to rise above the adversities of vintage and produce a very fine Hill of Grace. A refined Shiraz wine of judicious background oak and good concentration of articulate, old vine Shiraz characters.

Located four kilometres northwest of the Henschke wineworks, Hill of Grace is planted to a unique part of the Moculta landscape, where gently protected slopes nestle against the rocky Boundary Road ridge to the east. Soils on these slopes are thick, red clay rich loams, overlain by a a foot of fine brown, sandy to silty loams. Near Duck Ponds Creek, there is an additional layer of alluvial silty loams. The distinguished Grandfathers and Post Office Block One, in the western parts of the vineyard, are planted to these very special soils, which have good moisture holding capacity down to over one and a half metres. Segregation of the fruit from picking to assemblage, represents the ultimate in selection of terroir.

Henschke Hill of Grace 1984
Eden Valley
A long period of drought was broken by welcomed rains early in the 1984 growing season, which heralded an opportunity to produce a good harvest. The weather turned warm at vintage, finishing a good year with favourable conditions. Slightly more restrained and reserved than releases from similarly warm years, the old Eden Valley vines yielded Shiraz of tight fruit character and exquisite balance, Henschke Hill of Grace again led the way.

Stephen Henschke and wife Prue uphold the family name and reputation, as chief winemaker and viticulturist respectively. The highly revered Hill of Grace represents the pinnacle of Australian single vineyard wine. Prue's meticulous viticultural management has breathed life into the venerable old vines. A mulch of wheat straw is applied to retain soil moisture, build up organic matter and inhibit weed growth. The grapes are picked early to mid April at a sugar level of around 24 Brix. There's always a good acid/pH balance from this vineyard and the anthocyanins in the berries are very high, all contributing to the unique quality at Hill of Grace.

Henschke Hill of Grace 1985
Eden Valley
Vintage 1985 proved too hot and dry for most vineyards within the environs of Eden and Barossa Valleys. Severely reduced crops for most South Australian wineries were further decimated by the ravages of a very wet autumn. Henschke's Eden Valley fruit was saved largely by it's protective Shangrila topography, a unique mesoclime which yields the most precious harvests while maintaining the excellence of Australia's finest single vineyard wine.

Hill of Grace is one of Australia's original vineyards. Over 160 years ago, Johann Christian Henschke came from Silesia to settle and farm in Eden Valley. Vines were planted around the 1860s in rich alluvial soils on a shallow fertile valley just northwest of the current Henschke wineworks. By the time third generation Paul Alfred Henschke took over the reins in 1914, the famous Hill of Grace Shiraz vines were more than fifty years old. Hill of Grace remains a unique delineated single historic vineyard, just opposite a beautiful old Lutheran Church, built of local field stone, which was euphoniously named Gnadenberg, which of course, means Hill of Grace.

Henschke Hill of Grace 1988
Eden Valley
Vintage 1988 brought a harvest of the most outstanding Shiraz to Valley Eden. A smaller yield due to spring frosts, the bulk of the growing season was long, warm and dry, ideal for Henschke vineyards. A highly memorable Hill of Grace, the grapes came in early and in superb condition, the finished wine was characterized by a spectacular concentration of Eden Valey Shiraz fruit characters.

The Grandfathers Block on Hill of Grace was established by Nicolaus Stanitzki in the 1860s. These vines were planted on own roots from pre phylloxera material brought by early European settlers. The sturdy, gnarled vines are dry grown and yield an average two tonnes to the acre, widely spaced at 3.1 metres between vines and 3.4 metres between rows. The one metre high trellis consists of two wires which carry two to three arched canes, yielding bud number of around 40% to 50% The foliage is allowed to hang down to form a drooping canopy, thereby reducing shoot vigor for enhanced intensity. In wetter years, the shoot tips are trimmed before veraison on the blocks showing any increase in vigor.

Henschke Hill of Grace 1989
Eden Valley
One of the few quality releases, out of what was a lesser vintage around Australia. Inconsistent weather patterns, followed by February heatwaves, made unremarkable wines everywhere, some of the Barossa and Eden Valley vineyards however, somehow managed to pull through and yield parcels of superior quality fruit. Hill of Grace delivered an elegant wine, perfumed with violets and sweet red fruits, concentrated with flavour and supported by a length of caramel vanilla oak, a perfect balance and endless finish.

The Hill of Grace property was originally granted to Charles Flaxman by land grant in 1842 for £1 per acre. It was then sold by George Fife Angas to Nicolaus Stanitzki in 1873, for £480. Paul Gotthard Henschke purchased the vineyard in 1891. The land changed hands several times again until 1951, when it was was acquired by Louis Edmund Henschke, a son of Paul Alfred Henschke, who worked the vineyard for almost forty years. Each generation built upon the reputation for quality, but it was fourth generation Cyril Alfred Henschke, who in 1958, created the marque which has most captured the red wine world's imagination.

Henschke Hill of Grace 1990
Eden Valley
Exceptional Langtons Classification. One of the world's great vineyards, Hill of Grace is preserved through the efforts of Prue and Stephen Henschke, as they employ a regimen of traditional agricultural techniques which would have been familiar to Australia's earliest pioneers. The site was originally chosen for its auspicious mesoclime, it remains the source of the nation's most exceptional single vineyard wine. Shiraz grown to the pre phyloxera vines a century and a half of age, is minimally handled, allowing the outstanding quality of fruit to speak for itself.
