Good, strong colour; the cooler climate of the Eden Valley was a godsend in '08, the old vines also doing their share in producing a Mount Edelstone to stand tall with its layers of fruit, nuances of spice and licorice, and excellent ripe tannins.

Produced from nearly 100-year-old, dry-grown, ungrafted Shiraz vines, the 2008 Mount Edelstone has a deep garnet-purple and a wonderfully fragrant nose, with notes of roses and lavender over ripe cassis and blackberry, plus hints of sage, allspice and anise. The full bodied palate provides a great concentration of ripe, spicy fruit with crisp acid to give just enough lift and a medium level of velvety tannins, lending support. The finish is long with some earthiness coming through. It's tempting to drink now though it should be best 2013 to 2022+.

This is generous and rich, with lots of earthy, spicy character and crushed herbs. Hints of dark fruit jam, but doesn't feel it. Full bodied, yet balanced and fresh. Long, long finish. Intense. This is made from vines... This is generous and rich, with lots of earthy, spicy character and crushed herbs. Hints of dark fruit jam, but doesn't feel it. Full bodied, yet balanced and fresh. Long, long finish. Intense. This is made from vines almost 100 years old and 40 acre. Better in 2013. Screwcap.
