Henschke Mount Edelstone 2014
|Australia, South Australia, Eden Valley
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.
