Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 Mount Edelstone is a single-vineyard Shiraz showing a little reticent at this youthful stage, though it gives delicate black and red fruit aromas that fan out with air to reveal kirsch, red currant jelly, mulberries and Chinese Five Spice notes alongside hints of dusty earth and potpourri. The palate is led by its commendable structure at this stage, with firm, grainy tannins and very lively acid to support the tight-knit fruit. It finishes long and layered. Consider drinking this 2016 to 2026+.

About This Producer


The heritage of Henschke spans 5 generations and 130 years. It is one of the longest and most well-established names in the Barossa Valley, with fifth generation winemaker Stephen Henschke and his wife Prue continuing the exceptional tradition of producing quality wines. Close ties to the vineyards and land, as well as minimal intervention in the cellar, are what make the wines consistent winners among critics and consumers alike. While well-known for the "Hill of Grace" bottling, Henschke also produces a variety of other Shiraz and white varieties, almost entirely under screw cap. These wines promote the unique character of the Eden Valley region of the Barossa Range, which is a honeycomb of site climates with its river valleys and undulating hills. The wines are ready to enjoy upon release, but have such a beautiful balance of fruit, structure and acidity that they are worthy candidates for cellaring.
