Henschke 2015 Mount Edelstone Shiraz
Mount Edelstone Shiraz is the baby brother to Henschke's Hill of Grace. This is one single vineyard of dry-grown Shiraz in the Eden Valley planted in 1912, and has been made as a single-vineyard wine since 1952. It is roughly 16 hectares, about 4 times the size of Hill of Grace itself, but the quality of wine produced here is just a mere nudge away, being one of Australia's most historic and revered wines.
"Camphor, pitch and raspberry appear on the nose of Henschke's 2015 Mount Edelstone Vineyard Shiraz. It's a muscular, full-bodied expression of Eden Valley Shiraz, with notes of black olives and cassis on the palate and enough tannins to give this amply-endowed wine a savory edge. There's a lovely sense of tension between the fruity and savory elements and a long, velvety finish, making this one of the stars of the lineup—and a relative bargain compared to the Hill of Grace. The dry-farmed vineyard was planted in 1912 and has been bottled as a single-vineyard wine since 1952, making it one of the oldest such wines in Australia."
