Being a benchmark in Australian Shiraz the Mount Edelstone wines do not disappoint. The beautiful and historical name Mount Edelstone is a translation from the German Edelstein meaning gemstone. With its luscious bouquet, spicy and dark fruit flavours and silky tannins which have improved over age, this wine is an ideal partner at dinner. The 1992 is ready to go, perfect for lovers of aged Shiraz. Surprisingly youthful purple-red colour; fresh, scented cherry/berry/spice aromas, reflecting a relatively cool vintage but showing lovely varietal character. There is delicious spicy/cherry/berry fruit on the palate with sweet vanillin oak.

Some brown at the rim, though still luminous ruby core. Rich, ripe, almost furry texture. Powerful wine with lots of guts and still quite a bit to give although, like the 1993. it falls away a little on the finish, which is very slightly dry in this case.
