Mount Edelstone epitomises the aromatic beauty and cooler climate fruit flavours of Eden Valley shiraz. The pure blackberry, dark cherry, black pepper and sage aromatics, underlying savoury complexity and fine-grained textures reach optimum maturity between five and 15 years, with the best vintages boasting even greater ageing potential.

Mount Edelstone has been crafted by the Henschke family for over 65 years now and is arguably the longest consecutively produced, single-vineyard wine in Australia. Planted in 1912 by Ronald Angas, a descendant of George Fife Angas who played a significant role in the founding of South Australia, the Mount Edelstone Vineyard comprises solely of shiraz, which was unusual for its time. The unique geological make up of deep red-brown clay-loam to clay results in low yields from the dry-grown, ungrafted centenarian vines. First bottled as a single-vineyard wine in 1952 by Cyril Henschke, it has become recognised as one of Australia’s greatest shiraz wines.

Deep crimson with ruby hues. Fragrant aromas of  black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, bramble bay leaf and sage, with subtle notes of liquorice, cedar and burnt orange. The palate is rich and lush with well defined blackberry and red fruit notes, leading to intense and spicy layers of licorice, sage and black pepper. Excellent balance and seamless tannins provide a long lingering finish.
