The pedigree and provenance of this Shiraz vineyard is impressive. Ronald Angas planted the Mount Edelstone vineyard in 1912, from where cuttings were taken to establish the Hutton Vale Farm vineyards in the 1960’s. The Mount Edelstone vineyard was later sold to the Henschke family. Over the years the Angas’ sold their fruit to a number of top Barossa wineries where it found its way into many great wines, including those twice voted best Shiraz in the world.

"Deeply coloured, the fruits are ripe and fleshy – blackberry and black cherry aromas are lifted by liquorice and terracotta with generous coffee grounds scented oak in support. The palate follows with a dense core of dark fruit flavours plus attractive salt bush, Bay leaf and peppery spice. Sinewy tannins underpin what is quite a complete package before a long and fine finish, with a little hint of dried tobacco to close. You get the feeling these wines are only going to get better over time." - 95 points Angus Hughson,

 "There’s a generosity of dark red and black fruits, whole black pepper spice and herbs on the nose. The palate is brimming with brooding dark red fruits and salty-savoury liquorice notes that characterise Shiraz from this area. The finish is seamless, fine and long. Shiraz from Hutton Vale Farm has proven cellaring pedigree and should evolve over the next 15+ years." - Winery Notes
