Seventy years ago, Cyril Henschke created Mount Edelstone Shiraz, one of Australia’s first single-vineyard wines. Six years later, in 1958, the fourth-generation winemaker launched Hill of Grace. The now internationally famous wine firmly cemented his family’s – and Eden Valley’s – reputation for exceptional Shiraz.
Continuing the single-vineyard tradition, in 2001 Cyril’s son Stephen and his wife Prue released Hill of Roses Shiraz (a tiny plot of 28-year-old vines within the Hill of Grace vineyard), then The Wheelwright Shiraz in 2015.
To highlight differences in terroir and vine age, the couple are launching all four together for the first time on 4 May.
