2012 henschke, hill of roses, eden valley
Why We're Buying
Henschke is ground zero for the most expensive wines in the Eden Valley. Hill of Roses, a $300+ shiraz, showcases the estate's innovative style and exceptional winemaking technique. According to Wine-Searcher.com, it is one of the most sought-after offerings from the region.
Elegantly detailed and powerful with a strong spicy thread that carries a web of terroir-derived interest. The deeply spicy oak draws out the fruit’s inherent nature. Eden Valley sage and caramelized charcuterie with a core of blackberry and plum fruits. Modern and authentic but not quite as multi-dimensional as the Hill of Grace. However, it still shows all the swagger and focused power that comes from this part of the Eden Valley. Ballet-like poise and class. Superb now, but better from 2020.
