Henschke Mount Edelstone Shiraz 2016

Variety: Shiraz
Region: Eden Valley
Vintage: 2016

Deep crimson with violet hues. 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.

"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." 31 MARCH 2021
"...The combination of power and graceful elegance is captured here in a wonderful expression of this exceptional vintage. Grainy and faintly chalky tannins work into the fruit with support from the substantial, yet never overdone oak, most of which is new French. The wine has claims to being the oldest consecutively produced single- vineyard wine in Australia. One of the very best." 1 MAY 2021
