Press Review

    Elderton Ashmead Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

    Boy, this is one of the best I have tasted of this classic Barossa old-vine cabernet sauvignon. Such a seamless and elegant wine, with true varietal cabernet of a type you only get in the very best vintages. Blackcurrant and tobacco leaf, with a little black olive. Silky-smooth palate with such elegant tannins and fine-grained oak. A beauty.

    Elderton Ashmead Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

    Deep red/purple colour with a ripe blackberry fruity dominance. Full-bodied, firm and powerful, a big, concentrated and statuesque wine, with abundant tannin and astringency, length and drive. An alcohol kick on the finish. A big, dense concentrated cellaring special. This will live long and well.

    Elderton Ashmead Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

    A deep crimson edging on opaque, this wine brims with cabernet's varietal stash of attributes: currant and a swag of dark plum, dried sage, bouquet garni and a gentle lilt of grassiness. At first gentle and massaged by the sheer density of flavour, the tannins-grape and classy French oak-grow in stature as the wine opens; with well handled acidity levels serving as an echo chamber, drawing the flavours back across the senses. While corpulent, this wine's sheer mass is impeccably tucked in at the seams. To be slowly unravelled by time. From vines planted in '44.

    Elderton Ashmead Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

    Forest berries, aniseed, spice and cedar oak, a fair bit of it, but well folded in. Full bodied, well composed in the mouth with ample fruit, toasty wood, fine grained tannin, good concentration, yet not heavy, as such. Length is excellent with a subtle saltiness in the aftertaste. It’s of a certain style, yet you have to admire it.

     Elderton Ashmead Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

    Red Ripe, juicy blackberry and cherry flavors are generous and plump, with shadings of vanilla, toast and cedar. Notes of black licorice, espresso and Black Forest cake add an unctuous accent to the finish. The tannins are smooth and velvety. Drink now through 2027.
