Henschke's Mount Edelstone Shiraz is crafted from 100% 104 year-old single-vineyard Shiraz grown in the Mount Edelstone vineyard in the Eden valley, using organic and biodynamic practices.
The 2016 Henschke Mount Edelstone Shiraz was matured in 80% French and 20% American (19% new, 81% seasoned) hogsheads for 18 months prior to blending and bottling.
Fragrant, spicy aromas of black pepper, sage, bay leaf and anise are interwoven with vibrant Satsuma plum, blackberry and blueberry, and gentle tarragon and cedar notes. The palate is complex and textured with rich and concentrated flavours of mulberry, blackberry and Satsuma plum, layered with sage, black pepper and star anise. The finish is beautifully balanced, with long, velvety tannins and excellent depth.
"98 Points. There is a calm to Mount Edelstone, an effortless confidence in these 104 year old vines, more pronounced in 2016 than ever. And yet a determination, an energy, a singular pursuit that defines every detail from start to enduring finish. Prue, Stephen, Johann and Paul know these vines better than ever, too, and their craft in the winery has never been more sensitive. Powder-fine tannins achieve a profound contrast of graceful texture yet enduring power. Appearing notably ever more 'Grace'-ful, this is hands-down the finest Mount Edelstone of the modern era, and, almost certainly, ever."- Tyson Stelzer, Wine Business Magazine.
"98 Points. Blacks and purples. A glorious nose; soy, beefstock, leather, sarsaparilla, violets, black fruits, chocolate then black cherries, more chocolate and cassis. This is wonderfully complex with deep aromatics. The structure, complexity and length, let alone the array of flavours, suggest that this is a special wine. Beautifully integrated oak. Seamless. Concentrated and yet it dances. A magnificently elegant wine that is fragrant with terrific length and balance which has decades ahead of it supported by satiny tannins. For me, 98."- Ken Gargett, winepilot.com
