'Deep purple-crimson; the bouquet is intense and full of spicy black fruits accurately foretelling the power and purity of the palate; this is an outstanding Mount Edelstone, indeed, I cannot remember any better than this; it has the focus and structure to guarantee a 30-year future, if this is what you are after. Alas, it will long outlive me. 96 points.' James Halliday, James Halliday's Wine Companion

'The 2006 Mount Edelstone Shiraz was sourced from a vineyard planted in 1912 with yields of less than 0.5 tons/acre. It was aged for 21 months in 65% new French and American oak. Purple-colored, the nose sports aromas of wood smoke, Asian spices, incense, blueberry, blackberry, and chocolate. Dense and packed, this full-bodied Shiraz has lots of flesh, succulent blue and black fruit flavors, impeccable balance, and a long, pure finish. 96 points.' Jay Miller, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
