Winemaker Notes

Grown from a single block on the Elderton Estate with the use of biodynamic methods, this wine is something completely different and unexpected from Elderton, but sits perfectly within their premise to gain recognition for premier single vineyard wines. Fermented in waxed open fermenters with heading boards and pressed early straight to new French oak hogsheads, for 12 months on gross lees. Blackberry & bramble fruit with hints of bready yeast characters, full rich palate & great length, dominated by black forest berries whilst retaining freshness.

Blend: 100% Shiraz

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 93
Vinous
Deep, lurid ruby. A complex, assertively perfumed bouquet of ripe red and blue fruit liqueur and floral pastilles, with mineral and cola nuances coming up slowly. Sweet, concentrated and energetic on the palate, offering intense blueberry and black raspberry and violet pastille flavors sharpened by juicy acidity. Distinctly suave and seamless in texture, finishing with excellent clarity and thrust and fine-grained, gripping tannins.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Supple, polished, velvety and expressive, with ripe cherry and black currant fruit at the core, shaded by licorice and pepper on the finish. Remains fresh and inviting. Drink now through 2020.

Elderton Winery Video

After time spent working in Saudi Arabia, Neil and Lorraine Ashmead, moved to the Barossa in 1979, after Lorraine’s father identified a beautiful home with potential. The Ashmeads believed this would be a great place to raise their family. The homestead, in the heart of the township of Nuriootpa, was surrounded by extremely old Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon vines. At a time where demand for Australian table wine was negligible, the vineyard had become derelict. After years of no interest, the real estate agent eventually offered the Ashmeads the 72 acre vineyard as a bonus, as part of the sale of the homestead. Three years later, after restoring the vineyard, Elderton Wines was born.

The second generation, Cameron and Allister, took the reins of the business in 2003 and today work together to run Elderton Wines, with Lorraine still involved through her role on the Board. Cameron and Allister believe very strongly in continuing the traditions that began a generation earlier, on the Nuriootpa vineyard. Wanting to take the family company to the next level, they together devised a plan to buy great vineyards in other significant sub appellations of the Barossa. Through using sustainable practices, the hope is that the next generation of the Ashmead family have a lot to work with when they are at the helm.

Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers work diligently to ensure grapes reach the perfect levels of phenolic ripeness.

The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Shiraz on its own or Rhône Blends featuring Shiraz, Grenache, and Mourvèdre. Often Shiraz and Cabernet partner up for plump and powerful reds. While much less prevalent, light-skinned varieties such as Riesling, Viognier or Semillon produce vibrant Barossa Valley whites.

Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as the 1850s or before. Many of them are dry farmed and bush trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, intense, purple juice.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Blends of Southern Rhône, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
