Excellent vintage. A slightly more lifted wine with an exotic citrus rind note amid spicy perfume, iodine and some roasted duck meat - looking more evolved than the earlier '90s wines preceding it, complex and engaging though. The palate has an even spread of tannin and delivers plenty of depth and drive, quite dark and more brooding flavours, plums throughout, plenty of structure.
Medium purple-red; the bouquet is clean, moderately intense, with faint touches of green behind the sweet berry fruit, arguably adding complexity. The palate has unexpected richness and structure, with powerful yet ripe tannins; still very closed, and may develop exceptionally well with time. The culmination of two drought winters, record spring frosts, poor fruit set and a hot, dry summer, then the coldest March on record seemed a recipe for disaster. Once again a warm April came to the rescue with very ripe grapes being harvested. Yields down by 30 per cent to 40 per cent; peppercorn-sized grapes on the bunches.
Deep, bright ruby-red. Extremely subtle, complex nose combines black raspberry, smoked meat, orange peel, dark chocolate, earth and game. Large-scaled and powerful on entry; then silky and voluminous. Really expands on the palate and builds on the aftertaste, with the fruit outlasting the ripe tannins. I would have scored this wine even higher except for a hint of disjointed acidity. (ST) 92+
Deep garnet-brick in color, the 1995 Hill of Grace has a slightly leathered, dried fruit nose that is a little tired though highlighted by notes of sandalwood, tree bark and earth, hints of leather and meat. There's a touch of barnyard on the palate and it is a bit past its peak, fading slightly with crisp acid and firm, chewy tannins through a long finish. (LPB)
Youthful crimson. Well-knit, rosy nose. More evolved than many and very rich yet structured. Reminds me a little of the wonderful 1986. You can see Australia here but with great finesse. Super clean. 19/20 points (JR)
