VINTAGE DESCRIPTION

A later start to picking and a mild period of ripening finished with the last grapes being picked in mid-May. A wet 2016 winter gave us a good foundation for our predominantly dry-grown vines on their own roots, and a cool, wet and fiercely windy spring followed, with a slightly higher spring rainfall than the Barossa Valley, which delayed flowering, though conditions during set meant that yields were at average levels. A mild summer with regular rainfall events followed, which allowed the grapes to reach full physiological maturity. The significant rainfall events largely missed our area and therefore we harvested the majority of our grapes in healthy condition. As always, careful hand picking in the vineyard and sorting of grapes as they were processed made sure that quality was not compromised.

Critic tasting note: "From a 110-year-old vineyard of ungrafted Shiraz, Mount Edelstone is one of Australia's national treasures. True to Henschke's signature style, there's a spiced vegetal streak that's unique, almost mysterious. Aromas of grilled plum, blueberry and red-onion jam mingle with cumin-spiced roast beets, tomato leaf, white pepper and dried floral nuances. The palate is densely structured with a plush silkiness to the fruit that's reined in by earthy spiced, fine tannins. Poised and harmonious, with at least a decade of age ahead of it." - 96/100
