    Camphor, pitch and raspberry appear on the nose of Henschke's 2015 Mount Edelstone Vineyard Shiraz. It's a muscular, full-bodied expression of Eden Valley Shiraz, with notes of black olives and cassis on the palate and enough tannins to give this amply-endowed wine a savory edge. There's a lovely sense of tension between the fruity and savory elements and a long, velvety finish, making this one of the stars of the lineup—and a relative bargain compared to the Hill of Grace. The dry-farmed vineyard was planted in 1912 and has been bottled as a single-vineyard wine since 1952, making it one of the oldest such wines in Australia. Drink 2022-2035.

    Opaque ruby. Dark berry preserves, fruitcake, pipe tobacco candied flowers and a hint of vanilla on the deeply perfumed nose. Stains the palate with sappy black and blue fruit, mocha, licorice and rose pastille flavors and exotic spice and mineral nuances add energetic lift. Fleshy and deep but lively as well, with an impressively long, gently tannic finish that shows superb focus and dark fruit-driven persistence. Drink 2024 - 2037.

    Decanting recommended and in this case I can see why. It's still much more youthful than the other two Henschke 2015s I have tasted so far – Euphonium and Cyril Henschke. The tight, introvert aromas of balsam and dried grasses are just starting to come out. There's a definite touch of mint there too. This is drier and less flattering than the other two at the moment, with a minerally undertow. Strongly savoury finish and beautifully made but not nearly ready. I may come back and revise this note once the wine has sat in a decanter for a while but I'd advise stashing it in a cellar for now. And, gosh, it needs food! But it certainly mellowed in the glass and overnight. Lovely after 24 hours. Drink 2022-2034.

Eden Valley

This beautiful valley within South Australia’s Barossa has a fine reputation for lime-scented Rieslings and elegant Shiraz, most notably Henschke’s Hill of Grace.
