- Closure: Cork
Notes sourced from Henschke.
Grape Variety: 100% old vine shiraz grown in the Eden Valley wine region.
Background: The Mount Edelstone vineyard, meaning gemstone, is a single delineated historic vineyard planted in the 1920s on the eastern slopes of the hill of the same name, located near Keyneton high in the ranges east of the Barossa Valley. Aged vines, deep loam soil, Mediterranean climate and traditional winemaking techniques have continued to create one of Australia’s most unique old vine shiraz wines. The 80-year-old dry-grown vines are low yielding producing extraordinary intensity of colour, depth of fruit flavours, complexity and palate length. The Mount Edelstone wines have received awards at national wine shows since 1956.
Vintage Description: Good winter rains followed by a mild spring and a very mild long dry summer provided a slow ripening resulting in excellent quality wines.
Tasting Notes: Brick red, crimson in colour. Herbal notes with sweet blackberry and lifted aromas of anise, leather, tar and prune. The palate is well balanced and juicy with silky tannins.
Quality Assurance: This wine was assessed under the supervision of Stephen Henschke, winemaker of C.A. Henschke & Co.
Cellaring Potential: Excellent vintage, drink now. Reviewed April 2002. Decant before serving.
