Elderton Cabernet Sauvignon


Based in the town of Nuriootpa in the Barossa Valley, Elderton Wines was created by Neil and Lorraine Ashmead in 1980. The property itself was first planted to vine in 1894 by a pioneer family of German descent. In 1916 it was sold to Samuel Elderton Tolley, who built a large homestead. By the time the Ashmead’s purchased the property, most of the 29 hectares vines were overgrown and neglected. It took Neil and Lorraine three years to rehabilitate the vineyard and release their first vintage. Since 2003 the winery has been managed by their sons, Cameron and Allister, who purchased additional vineyards in Craneford and Greenock. Their top wine, the Elderton Command Shiraz, is an icon of the Australian wine industry.

In the words of the winery – “Winemaking in 2018 was as easy as it gets! Decent winter rains, and a spring without catastrophe, allowed for a healthy budburst and good flowering. Our Cabernet Sauvignon from 2018 brings together some leafy notes from our Greenock vineyard and backbone and structure from our Nuriootpa vineyard. The fruit from our Craneford vineyard, which enjoyed the long slow ripening in Autumn, brings structure and a lovely floral note to the wine. Aged in new and older French oak, we think this wine is a classic.”
