1987 Henschke Mount Edelstone Museum Release

Eden Valley, South Australia, AUSTRALIA
$79.99 Bottle
  • 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 70-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: Third cool vintage in a row. Coolest summer recorded since the late 1800's.Vintage conditions - summer rains produced average yields of extremely high quality fruit from a vintage which started nearly two weeks later than usual.

Tasting Notes: Very deep crimson in colour. Perfumed with sweet spice, showing intense blackberry, ripe plum, prune, licorice and tar aromas and subtle hint of gaminess, cedar and bacon. The palate is rich and complex with powerful fruit, opulent structure and wonderful texture with velvety tannins and a very long finish.

Cellaring Potential: Great, optimum year 2012.
Alcohol: 12.9%
