Luxuriant, opulent, heady, showing spicy plum, blackberry, cherry and gently peppery aromas and flavors that swirl harmoniously and echo long and sweet on the supple finish. Still youthful, this Australian red is already expertly balanced and poised. *Cellar Selection*
Other than the top cuvees of Penfolds' Grange, and the old vine Grenache and Astralis from Clarendon Hills, no Australian wines are richer than these offerings from Henschke - a winery that gets my nod as one of Australia's two or three finest producers. Each of these wines coats the mouth with glorious levels of jammy fruit, extract, glycerin, and silky tannin. They are all dense ruby/purple-colored, full-bodied, and capable of lasting at least a decade, and in the case of the 1991 Shiraz Hill of Grace, possibly 20+ years. The ostentatious 1993 Shiraz Mount Edelstone Keyneton Vineyard reveals a thicker looking color, and hits the palate with even more explosive richness and ripeness than the Keyneton Estate wine. It boasts a phenomenal sweet, rich, dense middle, as well as a huge, unctuous texture and finish. While approachable, it is capable of lasting for 10-15 years. These are awesome examples of what Australia is capable of producing. (RP)
