Why We're Buying
Henschke is home to some of Australia's finest single-vineyard wines. Mount Edelstone Shiraz comes from ungrafted vines planted in 1912 that produce ultra-lush and dynamic fruit. This shiraz jumped 49.5 in value from 2017 to 2021.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2009 Mount Edelstone presents youthful, muted aromas with primary notes of black cherries, creme de cassis and violets highlighted by hints of allspice and fennel seed. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, the dense fruit is superbly framed by a medium to firm level of grainy tannins and lively acid. It has lovely poise through the very long finish. Drink it from 2015 to 2025+. (97+)
