Complex nose showing earthy, cedar, leather notes as well as primary fruits of ripe mulberries and blackberries. Gloriously smooth and velvet palate with rounded chalky tannins seamlessly integrated acidity and sweet fruit. Touches of menthol and dried herbs signalling it’s cooler climate origins. Showing some glimpses of maturity means you can enjoy this wine now or cellar comfortably. This wine is a cornerstone of Henschke’s impressive range, sourced from 104 year old vines using biodynamic viticulture.
Henschke Mount Edelstone Shiraz 2016, Eden Valley, SA
Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
