Hill of Grace is regarded as Australia's best single vineyard wine, this 2015 vintage is being touted as one of the best ever releases.


Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Dark crimson in colour with deep garnet hues. A concentrated array of aromas of mulberry, blackberry and dark plum indicate the richness to come while savoury and complex notes of charcuterie, cedar, sage and five spices tease the senses. Plush and velvety on the palate, the wine has intense fruit concentration with plum, redcurrant, blackberry and anise flavours, yet an enchantingly elegant and refined structure. Layers of silky tannins reveal the impressive depth of the wine before giving way to an incredibly long finish."


100/100 Nick Stock, James Suckling, April 2020 (2015 Vintage)
"A significant vintage for Hill of Grace, as the last 2015 red to leave the Henschke cellar, and a wine that delivers on every ounce of its promise and then some. The nose is so complex and fragrant with trademark brown spices taking center stage, amid light espresso, sage leaves, blackberries, cinnamon, anise, orange peel, ripe dark plums, pepper, gun smoke and a gentle, dried-rose edge. The palate has such impressive layers of fine tannin that make an instantly seamless, powerful and focused impression. It has architectural style with clean lines that build and ascend out of the finish. Long, spiced blackberries and dark plums are extruded in formation with such finesse and power. The acidity holds a torch to the rich, ripe plums and blackberries, illuminating freshness at the finish. A wine that will develop in a very consistent manner and likely to be at its best some 20 years from now. A collector’s dream. Vinolok closure."


100/100 Andrew Caillard MW (2015 Vintage)
"Medium deep crimson. Evocative, complex and beautiful sage herb garden red cherry mulberry aromas with espresso mocha sesame notes and wild floral notes. Inky textured and pure with fresh red cherry, mulberry, blackberry fruits, fine supple silky sweet tannins, superb mid palate viscosity and underlying roasted chestnut, mocha, vanilla oak notes. Finishes minerally long with persistent sweet fruits and a slight kick of aniseed. Gorgeous wine with a very strong scent of place."


99/100 Huon Hooke, The Real Review, March 2020 (2015 vintage)
"Hill of Grace is now such an icon that it’s hard to imagine chief winemaker Stephen Henschke releasing a less than outstanding wine. He might release a tiny quantity of wine in a difficult year, or none at all, as in 2011, but the status of the wine and the lofty price it now commands almost guarantee that the Henschke family will uphold the standard if it’s the last thing they do.

I don’t score wines 100/100 on principle, but others do and probably will. I scored it 99, which is as high as I go. The perfect wine has yet to be created. And besides, what do you do when the perfect wine is at its peak of maturity? Score it 101? Surely it’s worth more points mature than young?

But this Hill of Grace is as close to perfection as I can imagine it. The wine is not only great, it is wholly distinctive. Its flavour and bouquet are unique in the world of wine. Is distinctiveness one of the necessary hallmarks of greatness in wine? Perhaps it is.

The aroma of this wine is extraordinarily complex, especially considering its youth. And typical of the vineyard. The curious mixture of vegetal and spicy aromas are its trademark: dried herbs, sage and thyme, forest-floor scents, crushed raspberries, subtle spices including clove and pepper. And that wonderful suppleness, that refined texture, that extraordinary balance, the silky tannins, the prodigious length and great but understated intensity. It’s all there – with an extra special touch of elegance. It will live for at least 30 years, but great wines of that kind of longevity are seldom as approachable young. This wine is positively irresistible right now, the tannins and oak have been so expertly managed."


99/100 James Halliday (2015 Vintage)
"Henschke says the '15 vintage provided stunning and elegant Eden Valley shiraz with extraordinary flavours, purity of fruit and acid balance. And indeed that's a fair description of this medium-bodied Hill of Grace. The colour is still bright, clear crimson-purple, and the beautifully balanced fruit flavours are vibrantly fresh. It would be easy to underestimate the likely longevity of this wine. One of the all-time greats."


98+/100 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2015 Vintage)
"Scents of smoked meat and mocha accent notes of black olives and blackberries, joined by subtle notions of resinous herbs, while the full-bodied palate comes across as slightly weightier, richer and more velvety in texture than the 2014. Not as elegant perhaps, but more concentrated and powerful on the long, long finish."

    5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

  • 5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

  • 5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
