Winemaker's Notes

Very deep crimson in colour. Sweet ripe intense spiced plum, blackberry and blueberry with anise and tar supported by sweet cedar and bacon oak characters. The palate is rich, concentrated and complex with excellent depth and structure. Layered with textured black fruits and chunky velvety tannins with a long intense finish.

"The 2002 Mount Edelstone Shiraz is spectacular. Its dense, opaque ruby/purple color is followed by a big, smoky perfume of roasted meats, creme de cassis, blackberries, licorice, and barbecue spices as well as a fabulously long finish that lasts nearly a minute."
-The Wine Advocate
