Very deep crimson in colour. Aromatic blackberries and plums with anise, black pepper, tar and ferns. Rich and concentrated, the palate shows fruit, spice, velvety tannins and excellent structure and length.
The Mount Edelstone vineyard, meaning precious gem is a single delineated historic vineyard and was planted in the 1920s on the eastern slopes of the hill of the same name, located near Keyneton high in the ranges east of the Barossa Valley. Aged vines, deep loam soil, Mediterranean climate and traditional winemaking techniques have continued to create one of Australia's most highly regarded shiraz wines. The 70-year-old dry-grown vines are low yielding producing intensity of colour, depth of fruit flavours, complexity and palate length. The Mount Edelstone wines have received awards at national wine shows each year since 1956.
