Description

  • Fresh Blackberry
  • Concentrated dark fruit
  • Subtle chocolate
  • Fine & elegant tannins

Deep crimson purple. Fresh varietal blackberry and bay leaf with nuances of dark olive. Concentrated dark fruits fill the palate with hints of chocolate, supported by very fine elegant tannins that lead to a long and seamless finish.

There are a number of blocks of Cabernet on the Elderton estate vineyards at Nuriootpa, Eden Valley and Greenock. Some of the best parcels from the Nuriootpa and Greenock sites are blended to create this Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes, which are lovingly tended to by Peter Wild and his team, are mainly harvested at Baume around 13.5 - 14.5, reached with the help of our Mediterranean climate.

Above average rainfall during winter, followed by a cooler than average spring, ensured adequate soil moisture for healthy canopy development. The cooler unseasonal conditions prevailed during January and February delaying veraison. Autumn saw the start of an Indian summer which continued well into April, resulting in perfect ripening conditions on the Valley floor for gradual development of flavour, with very fine grained tannins and excellent retention of natural acidity. The 2017 Elderton Estate Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon is a fresh and very pure fruit driven wine with an underlying elegance, depictive of a cooler Barossa vintage.

The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are grown exclusively on two of the three Elderton Vineyards, Nuriootpa and Greenock. The 1988 vintage was chosen by Qantas for first class, the 1992 vintage won the prestigious Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy in 1993 and for the next two years won Gold and Trophy at the Barossa Wine Show. The 1994 vintage gave Elderton its first international Gold medal at the 1996 London International Wine Show. The 1998 once again won Gold and Trophy, in the Barossa Wine Show for the Best Regional Cabernet, and the 1999 won a trophy in Belgium for the best wine imported into the country. A proven consistent performer, we believe that the 2017 will easily continue in this trend.
