HENSCHKE 2012 SHIRAZ "MT EDELSTONE"

The Eden Valley, Mount Edelstone, Hill of Grace and Lenswood vineyards are managed by viticulturist Prue Henschke using biodynamic and organic principles. Deep red with violet hues. Rich aromas of spicy plums, blackberries, anise and sage oil with hints of tar, pepper and cedar. The intensely fruited palate is concentrated, rich and lush with excellent balance, velvety tannins and a long finish.

AUSTRALIAN WINE COMPANION 98 POINTS - "Vivid, deep purple-crimson; this is a blue-blood aristocratic Shiraz, certain in its supreme power, length and balance, and not going out to prove anything. If anyone doubts its quality now, the scales will fall from their eyes over the decades ahead, as it will be recognised by all and sundry as one of the greatest Mount Edelstones. Screwcap. 14.5% alc. Drink to 2062."

STEPHEN TANZER INTERNATIONAL WINE CELLAR 94 POINTS - "Saturated ruby. Wild, intensely aromatic bouquet evokes ripe dark berries, incense, smoky Indian spices and vanilla, with a seductive floral quality emerging with aeration. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering intense blackberry and boysenberry flavors, a touch of anise and building spiciness. Velvety and full but lively too, finishing with excellent power and smooth, sneaky tannins that come in late"
