This is the best Mt Edelstone I can remember in a long time. I have now tried in on 6 occasions spanning 2006 to 2010 and it is gone from great to greater. The cool 2002 Vintage produced wines in the Barossa/Eden Valley of a level of elegance rarely seen in the region. In particular the Eden Valley reds of Henschkes were truly great wines. The fruit has a real raspberry spine and this is accentuated by the French Oak. The Wine is still very much in its youth and the raspberry fruit shows fantastic integration with the french oak and is not a fraction of a beat out of balance. I am only wishing I could spped up the wine clock and slow the body clock to see this wine develop over the next 12 + years At a $100 Aist this is outstanding drinking

...Cool, restrained aromas of cherry, redcurrant, licorice and graphite, with hints of tobacco and oak spice. Weighty and fat, but the dark cherry, plum, cassis and fruitcake flavors are firmed by juicy acidity, giving the wine nice grip... Stephen Tanzer.

Winemaker's Notes:

Grape Varieties100% 90-year-old-vine shiraz grown in the Eden Valley wine region. Wine Description 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. Background The Mount Edelstone vineyard, meaning gemstone, is a single delineated historic vineyard planted in the early 1900s on the eastern slopes of the hill of the same name, located near Keyneton high in the range east of the Barossa Valley. Aged vines, deep loam soil, Mediterranean climate and traditional hands-on winemaking techniques have continued to create one of Australia’s most unique old-vine shiraz wines. The 90-year-old dry-grown vines are low yielding, producing extraordinary intensity of colour, depth of fruit flavours, complexity and palate length. The individual-vineyard Mount Edelstone Shiraz has been produced since 1952. Vintage DescriptionThe year 2002 goes down as being the coolest, windiest ‘non-summer’ on record, following on from our hottest summer on record in 2001. It was preceded by a wet winter and a spring that was cold, wet and windy – like winter really. The drizzly cold weather affected the flowering and caused poor fruit set, commonly known as ‘hen and chicken’, leading to very little fruit. In particular riesling and shiraz, Eden Valley signature varieties, were the worst affected with crop reductions leaving us with less than 20% in some varieties. In addition the season was 2-3 weeks late due to the unseasonable cold weather. With the smaller crop level, the balance of sugar, flavour and natural acidity in the fruit were excellent. Despite the pitiful crop 2002 was one of our most exceptional vintages ever, helped by the warm dry Indian summer autumn period, providing sensational colours, flavours and ageing potential. Cellaring Potential Exceptional vintage, optimum year 2012+ Serving Idea Pheasant and eggplant. Technical Data Harvest date: 10-24 April Alcohol: 15% pH 3.54 Acid: 6.2g/l
