The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux. The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972. The Cabernet and Riesling of Forest Hill were promptly distinguished by multiple trophy victories and praised by gentleman James Halliday as the most remarkable wines to come out of the Australian west. Forest Hill have remained a source of the most.. Softly spoken wonders from the west»

Ronald Angas planted the distinguished Edelstone Vineyard in 1912. The forty acre site was planted to Shiraz vines, probably sourced through Joseph Gilbert at Pewsey Vale. The original pre-phylloxera material most likely originated from the James Busby selection, which was propagated by Samuel Smith of Yalumba in the 1850s. Whilst planted purely as a Shiraz vineyard, there have been found ten rogue vines of bastardo. The anthocyanins in the berries at Mount Edelstone are very high which indicates the superior quality of Shiraz. The finished wine is matured in a selection of seasoned and new French and American oak hogsheads for eighteen months prior to assemblage.
Deep crimson with purple hue. Powerful, ripe aromas of blackberry and plum, complexing hints of star anise, ferns, eucalypt and dark chocolate. Dense, ripe and rich, with a lush texture and ripe, licorice tinged fruit. The palate is an intense and concentrated blend of sweet, juicy plum pudding fruit and structured ripe tannin. With mouthfilling power, seamless texture and lingering finish, displaying the exquisite singularity of Mount Edelstone vineyard.
