Description

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.

This cuvée consists of 71% Shiraz and 29% Cabernet Sauvignon. Rarely joined in their homeland of France, these two grape varieties are often blended together in Australia. Once vinified, the wine was aged for a short period of time in mature American oak puncheons.

Generously full flavoured, this is a classic example of Aussie Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon. Purplish ruby in colour, it exhibits robust aromas of jammy blackberries, candied plums, licorice, allspice, and vanilla. Medium-full bodied, the palate is plush with silky tannins and peppery spice. Culminating in a round and easy finish, it’s the kind of wine you can enjoy with or without food.
