Henschke `Mt Edelstone` Shiraz 1991 (2x 750ml), cork closure.

Description:

The Mount Edelstone vineyard, situated in the Eden Valley, was planted in 1912 by Ronald Angas, a descendant of George Fife Angas, who founded South Australia. Unusual for its time, the vineyard was planted solely to shiraz in ancient 540 million-year-old soils which are deep red-brown clay-loam to clay, resulting in low yields from dry-grown ungrafted vines. The name Mount Edelstone is a translation from the German ‘Edelstein’, meaning gemstone and was first bottled as a single-vineyard wine in 1952.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

100% 90 year old vine shiraz grown in the Eden Valley wine region.

The Mount Edelstone vineyard, situated in the Eden Valley, was planted in 1912 by Ronald Angas, a descendant of George Fife Angas, who founded South Australia. Unusual for its time, it was planted solely to shiraz. The ancient 500 million year-old soils on the vineyard are deep red-brown clay-loam to clay resulting in low yields from the nearly 95-year-old dry-grown ungrafted vines. First bottled as a single-vineyard wine in 1952, it became recognised as one of Australia’s greatest shiraz wines.

Matured in 90% new, 10% seasoned French (67%) and American (33%) hogsheads for 21 months prior to blending and bottling.

Deep crimson/black in colour. A delightfully fragrant bouquet of anise, plum, sage and pepper with blackberry and vanilla hints adding complexity. The palate is lush and fleshy in texture with elegant fine, velvety tannins contributing to the wine’s length.
