    Why even mention phylloxera. Irrelevant spiel.

    The copy and paste of the description is of Hill of Grace, not Mount Edelstone.

    Sorry paste wrong contents here .. :( UPdated now

    Have had the 2008 vintage before - nothing special when it was ~$100.

    Perhaps we had it too young, the spiciness (peppery rather than tannic) taste unpleasant from memory.

    Subjectively the quality is probably worth ~$40 ;)

    Description says cork but I thought Henschke use Stelvin/Vino-lok

    Its a good deal to get it sub $200 esp now days. The 2015 was an exceptional vintage and you cant get that for under $200. 2016 is also another top vintage. One for the cellar for a few years.

    Incredible value! From my tasting notes:

    texturally silken, supremely elegant effort transparently and kaleidoscopically combines moss, wet stone, gentian, buddleia, coriander, pepper, piquant yet rich nut oils and a saline clam broth savor that milks the salivary glands. But besides this impressive array of non-fruity components, white peach and lemon deliver abundant primary juiciness and animating tang, rendering the finish as invigorating and refreshing as it is vibrant, mouthwatering and dynamically complex.

      Gotta love wine marketing [email protected] Personally I enjoy a good glass or two of camphor ("taken orally, camphor can cause trouble breathing, seizures, and death"), smoke (can cause "acute respiratory distress syndrome and respiratory failure") and grilled beef ("cooking meat at high temperatures produces cancer-causing chemicals called heterocyclic amines"). Luckily there's some blueberries and blackberries (anti-oxidants) to make up for the lack of grape flavour.
