Cellar/Tasting Notes
Intense deep crimson in colour. The nose is attractive and enticing with aromas of sweet blackberry, blueberry, Satsuma plum and rhubarb, with characteristic nuances of oriental spices, black tea leaves, anise, tar and cedar. The palate is rich and concentrated with spicy plum, crushed herbs and Dutch licorice flavours. An amazing balance of acid, fruit intensity, weight and length create a powerful palate that finishes with long, fine tannins.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 96
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2008 Hill of Grace has a slightly closed nose before giving subtle notes of ripe black cherries, blackberries and violets with hints of cedar, pepper, green tea and cumin. There's a slight raisin character on the full-bodied palate with crisp acid, dense fruit and firm, grainy tannins, finishing long.
James Halliday (JH): 98
Deep purple-crimson, even after five years. Explosively rich and decadent, with sumptuous black fruits that have soaked up the new and used French oak and carry the alcohol with ease. The grapes were picked early between March 9 and 13 before the heatwave ended. Each block was separately made and matured, and the final blend is not made until shortly before bottling.
