Tasting Notes:

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2009 Mount Edelstone presents youthful, muted aromas with primary notes of black cherries, creme de cassis and violets highlighted by hints of allspice and fennel seed. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, the dense fruit is superbly framed by a medium to firm level of grainy tannins and lively acid. It has lovely poise through the very long finish. Drink it from 2015 to 2025+.

Tasting Notes:

Deep crimson; a delightful euphony of red fruits, black fruits, quartz, spices and a touch of briary complexity; the medium-bodied palate is poised and precise, offering a velvety armchair ride to a long, even and multilayered conclusion; wonderful nerve and energy, with a very long life ahead indeed. Shiraz.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Henschke is a family-owned, 148-year-old Australian winery, located in Keyneton, South Australia in the Eden Valley wine region. It produces the 'Hill of Grace', one of Australia's "cult wines", and was considered Australia's second best wine by James Halliday in 2009.Johann Christian Henschke, born on 24 December 1803, was from Silesia, and fled his homeland for Australia in 1841. In 1862 he purchased land in what now is called Keyneton. In 1868 he produced the first vintage of about 300 gallons of wine. In 1891 his son Paul Gotthard Henschke bought some land near the Gnadenberg Church; that land is now known as 'the Hill of Grace vineyard'. In the 1950s, Henschke started focusing on table wine instead of fortified wine that was more common in Australia at that time. In 1979 Stephen and Prue Henschke took over the running of the winery after Stephen's father Cyril died.In 2009, Henschke was asked to join Australian wine alliance, Australia’s First Families of Wine.Henschke is best known for 'Hill of Grace', a Shiraz based wine first produced in the 1958 vintage, which was classified as "Exceptional", the highest ranking in Langton’s Classification of Australian Wine, in 2005. Hill of Grace is produced from vines planted in the 1860s. Henscke also produces a wide range of other wines; many are from shiraz grapes, but there are also wines and blends from cabernet sauvignon, pinot noir, merlot, grenache, mourvèdre, cabernet franc, semillon, chardonnay, riesling, gewürztraminer, viognier, pinot gris and muscat.
