The Mount Edelstone vineyard, situated in the Eden Valley, was planted in 1912 by Ronald Angas, a descendant of George Fife Angas, who founded South Australia. Unusual for its time, it was planted solely to shiraz. The ancient 500 million-year-old soils on the vineyard are deep red-brown clay-loam to clay, resulting in low yields from over 100 year-old dry-grown, ungrafted centenarian vines. First bottled as a single-vineyard wine in 1952, it became recognised as one of the greatest shiraz wines in Australia.

Dark crimson with bright ruby hues. Lifted aromas of sage, bay leaf, black pepper, brown baking spices, plum pudding and blue fruits are woven together with charcuterie and earthy notes. The palate is rich and complex with layers of blackcurrant, blackberry and Satsuma plum, expressing hints of cedar and leather. Balanced acidity and fine-grained tannins reveal incredible length and depth.

100% 101-year-old single-vineyard shiraz grown on the Henschke Mount Edelstone Vineyard in the Eden Valley wine region, managed with organic and biodynamic practices.

Matured in 34% new and 66% seasoned (81% French, 19% American) oak hogsheads for 18 months prior to blending and bottling. Bottle aged in the Henschke Cellar for museum release.

Alc/Vol: 14.5%
