Henschke - Mount Edelstone Shiraz 2010Intensly Fruity
Very deep crimson/black in colour.
A complex sweet, spicy nose showing lifted fragrant aromas of plum and blackberry with hints of sage and pepper supported by toasty oak.
The intensely fruited palate exhibiting dark berries is complex and fleshy with great structure, velvety tannins and a long finish.
Great vintage, drink now to 2020.
Serving Idea: Pan-roasted rib-eye steak with red wine and parsnip mash.
In 1912 Ronald Angas planted the sandy loam slopes of Mount Edelstone with shiraz. Located high in the Eden Valley region this vineyard came to be known as Mount Edelstone meaning gemstone.
The 90-year-old ungrafted dry-grown vines from this historic single vineyard are low yielding, producing a depth of colour, concentration of flavour, length and maturity of tannins unique to old-vine shiraz.
Mount Edelstone has achieved a formidable reputation since its first vintage in 1952.
