Description

“I remember this wine well; it was always a more powerful and strident soul. In a classic drought year, it showed harder tannins and rippling muscle, and these traits have certainly mellowed over the last six years. This is a beautiful counterpoint to the 2019, and it was great fun to revisit this vintage. There is no doubt that it is a mighty Mount Edelstone, and while it is not a classic, it is certainly an excitable and enthusiastic wine.”
18.5/20, MATTHEW JUKES

“This Museum & Rare Collection release maintains a firm but fine backbone of polished tannins which, together with the youthful primary fruit (predominantly black), brings potency and great presence to the palate. Sage, winter greens and underripe strawberry lend nuance and freshness. There is subtle viscosity too, with tertiary tapenade character and nutty, savoury oak. But there's plenty of mileage here too, with mouth-coating tannins and cleansing acidity to the finish.”
97 POINTS, SARAH AHMED, DECANTER

“It's in a wonderful place with some light tertiary tones beginning to make themselves known in the form of gentle leather and tobacco notes that lie behind the elegant red and dark berry fruits. On a Zoom meeting as I tasted this wine, Stephen described the tannins as savoury and akin to a 'rollercoaster of tiny pebbles', which is a description that I love. It's a pleasure to see these museum releases, and this one is in a beautiful place.”
97 POINTS, DAVE BROOKES, HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION
