Beschreibung
Rotwein Henschke Cellars Hill of Grace Shiraz 2012 Australien 14,5 Vol.%
Neu mit Glas-Pfropfen-Verschluss.
In der dekorativen 1er-Holzkiste. Limited Production!

Der australische Rotwein Henschke Hill of Grace Shiraz 2012 besteht aus 100% Shiraz-Weintrauben - handgelesen von 19. März bis 4. April 2012 - aus der 4 Hektar grossen Single Weinrebenlage "Hill of Grace (Gnadenberg) Vineyard" im südaustralischen Weinanbaugebiet Eden Valley, gleich bei der lutheranischen Kirche und des historischen Örtchens Parrot Hill, gut 4 km nordwestlich der Weinkellerei von Henschke.

Uralte Rebstöcke, 1860 gepflanzt von Nicolaus Stanitzki, liefern das Traubengut für diesen Rotwein Henschke Hill of Grace Shiraz 2012, das in offenen Betontanks mazeriert (Extraktion der Farb-, Aroma- und Gerbstoffe aus den Traubenhäuten) und vergoren wird. Der Ausbau erfolgt während 18 Monate in 58% neuen und 42% gebrauchten grossen Holzweinfässern - French & American Oak Hogsheads - aus 85% französischer und 15% amerikanischer Eiche.

Geblendet und unfiltriert in Weinflaschen abgefüllt. Der südaustralische Icon-Rotwein Hill of Grace von Henschke kann deshalb unbedenklichen Weinsatz enthalten. Dekantieren empfohlen!

Dieser Rotwein Henschke Hill of Grace Shiraz 2012 zeigt sehr tiefe, undurchlässige und hochrote Farbe. In der Nase spielen komplexe Aromen von Bratenfleisch, Würze, Speck, Teer, Pflaumen und Brombeeren, eingetaucht in feine Anisnoten, Minze und einem erdigen, exotischen Hauch. Ein voller und reichhaltiger südaustralischer Eden Valley-Rotwein Hill of Grace von Henschke mit komplexem, konzentrierten und sehr dichten Körper. Sehr robuste Struktur gepaart mit feiner Säure und schönen Tanninen.

Der erste HILL OF GRACE SHIRAZ wurde 1958 von CYRIL HENSCHKE, Vater des heutigen Besitzers STEPHEN HENSCHKE, von Weintrauben von damals fast 100-jährigen Rebstöcken gekeltert. Ohne Übertreibung zählt der Henschke Hill of Grace aus einer der besten südaustralischen Weinrebenlage im Eden Valley zu den gesuchtesten und begehrtesten Weinen der Welt. Der exklusive Gnadenberg-Weinberg wird heute von Viticulturist PRUE HENSCHKE, Ehefrau von Stephen, nach strengen biodynamischen Prinzipien gepflegt und gehegt.

Grosser, leider sehr rarer Wein.
Weltweit ist der Henschke Cellars Hill of Grace Shiraz wohl einer der begehrtesten Rotweine. In der Schweiz finden pro Jahr maximum 100 Käufer je eine Flasche Hill of Grace!

FOUNDER anno 1868 Johann Christian Henschke.
OWNER since 1979 Prue & Stephen Henschke.
WINEMAKERS NOTES Stephen Henschke:
Over 165 years ago Johann Christian Henschke came from Silesia to settle and farm in the Eden Valley region. By the time third-generation Paul Alfred Henschke took over the reins in 1914, the famous Hill of Grace vines were more than 50 years old. They were planted around the 1860s by an ancestor, Nicolaus Stanitzki, in rich alluvial soil in a shallow fertile valley just north-west of the winery. The red-brown earth grading to deep silty loam has excellent moisture holding capacity for these dry-grown vines, which sit at an altitude of 400m, with an average rainfall of 520mm. Hill of Grace is a unique, delineated, historic single vineyard that lies opposite a beautiful old Lutheran church which is named after a picturesque region in Silesia called Gnadenberg, meaning Hill of Grace. Cyril Henschke made the first single vineyard shiraz wine from this 4ha single-vineyard, situated at the historic village of Parrot Hill 4km north-west of Henschke Cellars, in 1958 from handpicked grapes.

The 2012 growing Season: The La Niña pattern weakened during the lead-up to the 2012 vintage, resulting in below average winter and spring rainfall. July was the driest since the serious drought of 2003. Spring was mild with few frost events; however, flowering and fruit set were affected by wet drizzly weather in mid to late November, leading to only average yields. Summer was also surprisingly mild with below average temperatures from southerlies off the ocean in January and only two short heat events, at New Year and at the end of February. This provided for slow ripening which allowed for intense fruit flavours, high colour figures, high acidity and mature tannins. Rainfall leading up to vintage was above average, with the heaviest rainfall events in late January and late February, which tied in well with the natural physiology of the dry-grown vines; ie, keeping leaves active at veraison and ripening. Temperatures were mild during harvest through March, warming to an Indian summer in April, allowing for a long window of picking and amazing maturities with the red varieties. Shiraz was a standout variety showing great purity and spice, colour, intensity and strikingly mature tannins. Yields were average with exceptional overall quality.

Fifth generation winemaker Stephen Henschke describes the vintage as blessed by nature, a comparison to the prized years 2002 and 2005. From a tiny vineyard site in South Australia’s Eden Valley, overlooked by the spire of the historic Gnadenberg church, the single-vineyard shiraz has quietly carved out a name alongside the great single-vineyard wines of the world. Pioneered by fourth generation winemaker Cyril Henschke in 1958, the release of 2012 Hill of Grace marks the 54nd season and the 33nd wine crafted by Stephen and his viticulturist wife Prue. Henschke Hill of Grace is held in the greatest esteem by generations of Australian and international wine lovers. Deeply connected to the Australian landscape, each vintage represents a piece of the journey of the Australian wine story. Following the philosophy of Henschke forebears, Henschke Hill of Grace is carefully nurtured using biodynamic and organic principles. The yield from the dry-grown ancestral vines now over 150 years of age, is always low with the small berries delivering incomparable texture and complexity.

Remembering our ancestors, the former custodians of Hill of Grace and their ability to endure and yet to always celebrate, we have chosen the word ‘Joy’ to mark our 2012 vintage of Henschke Hill of Grace. After the difficult season of 2011 that devastated the Hill of Grace crop, we were blessed by nature in 2012 with a truly beautiful and celebratory season; a long, slow ripening period that was perfectly timed.

Our 2012 Henschke Hill of Grace Shiraz shows very deep crimson, with violet hues. Captivating briary blackberry and mulberry aromatics lead to alluring exotic five spice, star anise and black peppercorns, with herbaceous notes of thyme and dried basil and slight gamey hints. The palate of our Henschke Hill of Grace Shiraz has incredible length and purity, with a focussed core of blackberry and plum fruit, wrapped by beautifully integrated layers of silky tannins and lingers endlessly with flavours of sage leaf and blackcurrant skin.

“Henschke Hill of Grace Shiraz: One of the greatest Australian shirazes… It is a magnificent, flawless wine, with balance, length, line and purity. It has perfect colour, fragrant dark cherry/berry aromas and flavours, positive tannin and French oak support. As it ages over the next 45 years, it will achieve a lustre, a silk and satin mouthfeel, flavours and spices ever-changing and intermingling.”
— James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2018

Zur Geschichte des australischen Weinguts Henschke Cellars:
Das Weingut HENSCHKE CELLARS - mit seinen heutigen 120 Hektar Weinrebenfläche - gehört mit über 155 Jahren Winzer-Tradition zu den ältesten Familienweingütern im Weinanbaugebiet Eden Valley in Südaustralien. Der Henschke-Cellar-Door wurde bereits in den 1860igern von JOHANN CHRISTIAN HENSCHKE (Bild ganz oben links mit Ehefrau Dorothea Elisabeth), der sich 1841 im Barossa Valley ansiedelte, erbaut. Der erste kommerzielle Henschke-Wein-Jahrgang war der 1868er. In absehbarer Zeit wird evt. der Weinkeller und der Cellar-Door von Henschke renoviert; auf dem Bild ein Beispiel wie es in Zukunft aussehen könnte.

Mit dem erfahrenen Kellermeister STEPHEN CARL HENSCHKE, Sohn von CYRIL HENSCHKE, leitet seit 1979 in 5. Generation ein bestausgewiesener Fachmann (auch ausgebildet in Geisenheim, Deutschland) das Henschke Cellars Weinunternehmen sehr weitsichtig. Für die gesamten Henschke-Rebberge ist seine sehr sympathische Frau PRUE zu 100% zuständig. Traditionelle Weinbereitung steht hier nicht im Widerspruch zu modernen Keltertechniken. Beides wird gepflegt, wo es sinnvoll ist. Die erste Vergärung erfolgt nach uralter Tradition in offenen Tanks. Die Henschke Weine – nuancenreich, elegant und dennoch kraftvoll – bestätigen diese Auffassung.

Auch Stephen und Prue`s Kinder sind mittlerweile im erfolgreichen Henschke Weinbusiness involviert. Johann Henschke, der Älteste, arbeitet seit seinem Abschluss als "Master in Viticulture and Oenology" im Jahre 2012 an der Seite seiner Eltern im Weinkeller und in den Rebbergen. Seine Schwester JUSTINE HENSCHKE übernahm 2015 den anspruchsvollen Job als Marketing & Public Relations Manager. Während der Jüngste, ANDREAS HENSCHKE, noch in der Ausbildung als Ingenieur seine Sporen abverdient. Seine Eltern sind zuversichtlich, dass auch er einmal im Henschke Cellars Weinunternehmen involviert sein wird.

Henschke Cellars - Stephen Carl Henschke - Eden Valley South Australia:
Henschke Cellar Door
1428 Keyneton Road, Keyneton SA 5353.
Visiting the historic stone Henschke Cellar Door, builtin the 1860s by Johann Christian Henschke, is one of the most charming experiences in the Barossa. It’s a tiny cellar for an internationally acclaimed winery but in these intimate surrounds, tasting a line-up of beautiful wines, watched over by portraits of Henschke forebears, you will feel very connected to the six generations of family who have contributed to the success of Henschke. Henschke boasts a strong portfolio, with a focus on ultra-premium single-vineyard wines. The beautifully handcrafted wines from Eden Valley, Barossa Valley and Adelaide Hills are available for purchase from Cellar Door and a selection of these wines are available for tasting.

Henschke is regarded as the best medium-sized red wine producer in Australia, Henschke has gone from strength to strength over the past three decades under the guidance of winemaker Stephen and viticulturist Prue Henschke. The red wines fully capitalise on the very old, low-yielding, high quality vines and are superbly made with sensitive but positive use of new small oak: Hill of Grace is second only to Penfolds Grange as Australias red wine icon (since 2005 sold with a screwcap). A founding member of Australias First Families of Wine. Exports to all major markets.

Fifth-generation Stephen Carl Henschke took over running the winery in 1979. Born in 1950, he was Cyril’s younger son and showed an interest in science and winemaking from an early age. Stephen completed a Bachelor of Science Degree at Adelaide University in 1973, gained winemaking experience in the Hunter Valley, and in 1975 with his wife Prue, spent two years at the Geisenheim Institute of Viticulture and Wine Technology in West Germany. During their stay in Germany he undertook work experience in two wineries, Winzerverein Oberrotweil in Baden and the Institut für "Rebenzüchtung und Rebenveredlung" in Geisenheim, Germany.

On their return to Australia they enrolled in Wine Science at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, in order to catch up with the changes in the Australian wine industry. During this time Stephen worked with his father at the winery in Keyneton while Prue embarked on a career as a technical research officer at the nearby Roseworthy College.

In the early 1980s, Stephen introduced winemaking techniques learned in Germany and upgraded to more flexible refrigeration in the winery in order to improve the Quality of the white wines. He maintained his ancestors traditional methods with his red wines, which focused on fruit quality and tannin maturity in the vineyard, submerged cap open fermentation, minimal racking, no fining and minimal filtration. He also began incorporating barrel fermentation as a component of his red Fermentation techniques. Because of the poorly seasoned oak at the time he introduced an oak timber purchase program, seasoning it in the Barossa in order to obtain better Quality mature oak flavours.

In the early 1980s, Stephen and Prue Henschke purchased an apple orchard at Lenswood in the cool-climate Adelaide Hills in order to pioneer viticultural and soil Management techniques from Germany. This led to using Vertical Shoot Positioned canopies to improve fruit exposure and the old-vine selection programs in the 100-year-old shiraz vineyards.

In 1988 and 1989 they worked vintages in Burgundy and Bordeaux respectively, in order to research the grass roots level of viticulture and winemaking in those regions. With widened perspectives they have forged their own styles, with much of the success of Henschke wines attributed to the vine Age and fruit quality in the vineyards. In 1994/95 the UK International Wine and Spirit Competition named them International Red Winemaker of the Year.

Stephen and Prue, with their three children Johann, Justine and Andreas, quietly continue a proud heritage and the philosophy for outstanding quality. They are mindful of the fact that more than 145 years of grapegrowing and winemaking, spanning six generations, has been an integral part of Australian quality wine history.
