Henschke Mount Edelstone Shiraz
"The palate shows incredible purity and balance"
"Still a bit tight and cedary, the 2013 Mount Edelstone Shiraz could use a couple of more years to flesh out and round into form. Sage and blackberry notes predominate in this full-bodied, concentrated and richly tannic offering. It still comes across as slightly drying on the finish, but it's velvety, and the fruit comes through at the end, so don't hesitate to hold onto this for a decade or more." 96/100, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate
"Rich and lush, with fleshy black cherry, plum and black licorice notes and a complex chorus of Earl Grey tea, vanilla custard, chocolate and date nut bread details lingering effortlessly on the finish. Drink now through 2028."
Wine Spectator (May-2018)
The Mount Edelstone vineyard, situated in the Eden Valley, was planted in 1912 by Ronald Angas, a descendant of George Fife Angas, who founded South Australia. Unusual for its time, it was planted solely to shiraz. First bottled as a single-vineyard wine in 1952, the Mount Edelstone became recognised as one of Australia’s greatest shiraz wines.
"At Henschke we have a proud tradition of patiently ageing our top red wines in the cellar from two to five years before release. As a family-owned winery, we enjoy the ability to release our wines when we feel that they are at their best. The 2013 vintage is a full bodied, structural beauty that is approachable now and will only become more complex as it ages."
Stephen Henschke, winemaker
The Henschke estate practises biodynamic farming; "I would like to see the next generation inherit a fertile and sustainable land. Using the principles of biodynamics and organics enables me to create the best environment for plant growth."
