Henschke Hill of Grace 1996, 2 Bottles Offered in Dreweatts Fine Wine Auction, June 9

Only 500 cases of Henschke Hill of Grace 1996 vintage were made.

Collectors and those who revel in the joy of drinking rare finds will be able to bid on 2 bottles of this one of a kind Shiraz thanks to Dreweatts Fine Wine, Port & Champagne Auction on June 9, 2011.

Thanks to Wine House (Old and Rare Wines), I learned that the name Hill of Grace "is a translation from the German 'Gnadenberg', a region in Silesia, and the name given to the lovely Lutheran Church across the road."  For Prue and Stephen Henschke it is the name of both the vineyard and the wine.


Starting price will be £400-450 for this lot (1575)

Hill of Grace first vintage was in 1958.

You can either visit the auction house at Donnington Priory in the UK or bid online.
