Henschke 1993 Mt Edelstone Shiraz

Once it a while we get to drink great wines. This one certainly was a really good wine, though I am not sure it was great. Still reddish in hue, though with a slight amount of brown tones, very aromatic of plums and blueberries, not much oak on the nose. The flavour was concentrated and very long, the indication of great grapes and wine making. It was a little less complex than I imagined, but did have nice developed earthy and leathery nuances. The fruit seemed really ripe and did not have the subtle black pepper that I expected. It was certainly Australian and not Rhone. I got it on sale in 1995 for about $25.
