Product Information

Winemaking

The Mount Edelstone vineyard, situated in the Eden Valley, was planted in 1912 by Ronald Angas, a descendant of George Fife Angas, who founded South Australia. Unusual for its time, it was planted solely to shiraz. The ancient 500 million-year-old soils on the vineyard are deep red-brown clay-loam to clay, resulting in low yields from over 100 year-old dry-grown, ungrafted centenarian vines. First bottled as a single-vineyard wine in 1952, it became recognised as one of Australia’s greatest shiraz wines. The ungrafted dry-grown vines from this historic single vineyard are low yielding, producing a depth of colour, concentration of flavour, length and maturity of tannins unique to old-vine shiraz.

Press

  • 2014 Mount Edelstone Vineyard Single Vineyard Shiraz Eden Valley is a force to be reckoned with in 2014 because half of its flavour is generous and enchanting and the other half is tannic and closed. This is going to be a fascinating wine to follow and I would bet that it looks epic in five or six year’s time and then rolls on for another decade with ease.
