Henschke Mount Edelstone Shiraz 750mL
Very deep crimson in colour. Definitive Mount Edelstone shiraz aromas of sage and crushed black pepper lead to brightly spiced plum, blue and black cherry characters, enveloped by crushed flowering herbs with cedar nuances. Vibrant, wild forest berries are layered beautifully into a rich and elegantly textured palate with fine velvety tannins and lingering notes of black pepper and sage for an extremely long finish.
Critics Rating: ERIN LARKIN ERINLARKIN.COM.AU 2015 Vintage "Single Vineyard Shiraz. Planted in 1912. Bottled as a single vineyard wine from the 1952 vintage onwards. This is salted black liquorice (the Dutch cat kind) grilled raspberry, blueberry, and mulberry. The palate is deep and saturating and for all of its opulence and stature, maintains restraint and finesse. The tannins make only a gentle impact on the palate, while they are omnipresent they are not overbearing and serve to bolster and support the fruit and spice. The length is incredibly long, leaving a lingering, beckoning impression on the palate. There is a saltiness and a moorishness here that is impossible to leave alone… the wine begs to be consumed, quietly cheering you on to do so from the glass. Delicious, exciting, classy and speaks clearly of it Eden Valley roots. Makes me want to drink a lot, lot more of this." 98 Points
