Henschke "Mount Edelstone" Shiraz 1997 Eden Valley
Henschke are not only one of the historic wine-making families of Australia, but also one of most iconic contemporary producers of the "New World" with their "Old World" approach to wine, wine making and wine exploration.
Mount Edelstone is one of the family's two iconic vineyards, the other being the famed Hill Of Grace. This wine was first released as a single-vineyard wine in 1952 and quickly became recognised as one of Australia's finest wines - as true then as today.
100% seriously old-vine (85+ years) Shiraz; matured in a combination of new and seasoned, American- and French Oak hogsheads for 18 months.
