Henschke Mount Edelstone 2014
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Eden Valley|
Deep crimson with garnet hues. This stunning 60th vintage has incredibly fragrant aromas of ripe plum, blue and black berry fruits, spice, sage and fresh bay leaf with notes of tar and cedar. These aromas follow through to the palate with rich, complex, concentrated dark fruits, spice and herbaceous nuances, tightly wound balanced acidity, textured layers and fine, long velvety tannins.
From vines planted in 1912, this has been an icon of South Australia Shiaz since 1952, when it was first bottled as a single-vineyard wine. Menthol and vanilla notes frame black cherries and cassis on the nose, while the palate reveals supple tannins and meaty, savory complexities. The finish is softly dusty, fine and long. Drink now-2030.
Plush and powerful, this opens with dried black olive and savory, minerally accents to the dark berry and plum flavors. Offering plenty of depth and complexity, the finish echoes with details of five-spice powder and anise. Drink now through 2030.
