"A striking 100% pinot noir aged for up to 18 years on lees; the last blend in Nov '17. A striking feature is its gin-clear colour, but so are the savoury, dried flower remnants of pinot noir flavour, and its exceptional length... Bottle development could be fascinating."


- James Halliday


"Henschke is so much more than Hill of Grace - take this exceptional sparkling as a case in point. One of a handful of Blanc de Noirs made in Australia and certainly the benchmark for the style, this is a white sparkling made entirely from Pinot Noir vinified without skin contact. Therefore the juice is white. Henschke have a reserve base of this clear Pinot Noir still on lees going back 18 vintages and there is material in this bottle spanning from 1997-2015. It's a unique sparkling on the landscape and its exceptional quality is as clear as the Pinot Noir juice it contains."
