Winemaker's Notes:

The Ode to Lorraine is a blend of the finest barrels of each of the Elderton Estate varietals. Each year, through meticulous work on the tasting bench, we select a blend of Cabernet, Shiraz and Merlot which best reflects the nuances of each variety. The 2008 vintage provides us with warm, generous fruit characters. We have crafted an Ode to Lorraine which shows not only generosity, but both formality and elegance.
