Johann Henschke presents the 2018 Hill of Grace at Oeno House04/05/2023
We were honoured to welcome Johann Henschke to Oeno House to celebrate not only the Estate’s 2018 release but also the 60th Anniversary of Cyril Henschke “captured that first shimmering edition of Hill of Grace” on the 3rd May.
Our private clients were thrilled to meet Johann who exclusively treated them to some exceptional old vintages of Hill of Grace as a surprise! A fascinating tasting.
“The 2018 Hill of Grace sings withthe rainsthatnurtured, thesun that warmed, and the nights that cooled. It reflects the inherent characters ofthis wondrous vineyardsite with exotic spices,plush complex layers offruit, pure fineacidityandlong, velvety tannins.” Stephen Henschke, Chief Winemaker.
From one of Australia’s most revered vineyards, the 2018 ‘Hill of Grace’ Shiraz was released globally on Thursday 4th May. The 2018 vintage celebrates several significant Henschke milestones, as it marks 60 years since Cyril Henschke first bottled ‘Hill of Grace’ from the 1958 vintage, as well as 150 years of Henschke family winemaking.
Alongside this preview of ‘Hill of Grace’, Johann will present the 2018 vintages of ‘Hill of Roses’, ‘Mount Edelstone’, ‘The Wheelwright’, and the acclaimed ‘Cyril Henschke’.
This was a very rare opportunity to be one of the first people in the UK trying the 2018 release and especially guided by Johann himself.
