98/100
The Wine Advocate
The prodigious 1999 Shiraz Hill of Grace is a magnificent Eden Valley Shiraz, fashioned from vineyard blocks ranging between 52-144 years of age. Its inky/ruby/plum/purple color is followed by a fragrant perfume of black fruits intermixed with underbrush, dried herbs, vanilla, and spring flowers. Full-bodied, magnificently concentrated, pure, and delineated, this gorgeous, still young, compelling Shiraz is another example of a vintage that more and more appears to be underrated.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #155

Wine Companion
Dense colour; powerful, classic thoroughbred texture and focus; black fruits; silky, smooth tannins and finish.

Jancis Robinson
Thick treacly colour and smell (which verges on oxidised). Lots of VA! Literally like melted treacle toffee - quite hard work! Very drying finish and sudden end. Where's the fruit? Extremely severe at this stage.
