Estate Notes

Henschke Mount Edelstone Shiraz 2001 is 100% Shiraz sourced from a vineyard planted in 1912 - packed with concentration, history and tradition.

Henschke is regarded as the best medium-sized red wine producer in Australia, and has gone from strength to strength over the past three decades under the guidance of winemaker Stephen and viticulturist Prue Henschke.

The red wines fully capitalise on very old, low-yielding, high-quality vines from the Eden Valley and are superbly made with sensitive but positive use of small new oak barrels.

Reviews

"The magnificent 2001 Mount Edelstone (100% Eden Valley Shiraz) boasts a dense purple color in addition to a gorgeous perfume of blackberry liqueur, white flowers, and toasty, subtle wood. Underbrush, pepper, and licorice also make an appearance. With great intensity, a multilayered, opulent personality, and plenty of structure, tannin, fruit and extract, this beauty should be cellared for 2-3 years, and drunk over the following 10-15." eRobertParker.com

“Licorice, spice, red cherry/berry fruit and plum; good intensity, depth and length ripe tannins.” James Halliday

“Rich, ripe and gooey, bright with plum and spice flavors that ride over firm tannins, shaded with tar and pepper notes on the long finish. Has depth and plenty of expression.” Wine Spectator
