Description

Full bodied, rich, classic Shiraz with a rich and vibrant dark purple hue. The nose offers aromas of black forest fruits, chocolate, vanilla. Whilst on the palate you will find plum and berries, chocolate and a spicy finish.

The 2016 vintage was outstanding with wines ripening before sugar levels became excessive. The wines of 2016 show great intensity and suppleness. I think this is another amazing vintage of the Elderton Shiraz, following in the footsteps of many of the phenomenal wines made under this label in the last 30+ years.

The fruit for Elderton Shiraz was traditionally sourced from the Elderton vineyard situated on the banks of the North Para River, Nuriootpa, Barossa Valley, South Australia. Today, this wine includes fruit from the three exceptional estate vineyards that the Ashmead family own. Elderton was transformed from a vineyard supplying quality fruit to other wineries to a winery in its own right in 1982, and have since won much recognition for all of the wines, especially the Shiraz. Barossa Shiraz is now highly collectable worldwide, and the Elderton is always a benchmark for the region. There are many blocks of Shiraz on the three Elderton estate vineyards, some as old as 100 years. Some of the best parcels from each of these single sites (Nuriootpa, Greenock and Craneford) are blended to create what one can only describe as ‘the perfect Barossa Shiraz’. The grapes, which are lovingly tended to by Peter Wild and his team, are mainly harvested at an optimum maturity of about 14 - 15 Baume. Perfect to drink now, or cellar confidently for 10-15 years.
