Réserve Brut Grand Cru Champagne Blend

Lemon seed, lemon oil, grape leaf, sage and lime nose, orange, lemon and lime pith entry is pronounced then softens to zest then ethereally creamy dichotomy astounds. Lightest white pepper that strikes a longing posture on infinite legs.

Hill of Grace Vineyard Shiraz 1998

Sunday lunch, where we always drink the best wine of the week. A perfect match with roast lamb. Lighter in colour than expected - almost transparent. Quite barnyard with the aromatics surprisingly with a little tobacco and dark chocolate. The opulent black fruits of its youth have transformed into a much more savoury wine after 25 years. This brings into question the age old query as to when to pop the cork on old wines. This was a terrific old wine but it left me thinking I would like a bit more fruit on the palate before those silky soft tannins. Still, it remains one of the world’s great wines in one of the most iconic vineyards with 140 year + old vines. The 2018 has just been released amid several 100 point scores and touted as one of the great H of G’s but at $950 I will pass. — 7 months ago

@ESF Certainly on my bucket list to visit the Hill of Grace vineyard with the old Lutheran Church. Will send shivers down one’s spine. See some of the excellent Henschke video clips.
