|1991||Henschke Shiraz Hill of Grace (Eden Valley)|
This wine had the most pronounced nose of the evening. But was it too much of a good thing? That depends on your point of view. The nose was the equivalent of breaking a bottle of perfume in the sink. The aromas kept jumping from the glass into my nose with pepper, prunes, Armangnac, creamy black fruit & a touch of vanilla ice cream. To say the wine was very full bodied and dense is an understatement! The flavors were very deep and the alcohol was not over the top at 13.5%. The mouth relished the deep black fruit interspersed with jammy black & red fruit. This tannic finish lasted close to 50 seconds. Not what I'd call elegant, but I get the quality.
