Press Review

    Elderton Ashmead Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

    Full-bodied, rich and opulent, with new oak very much in evidence from start to finish. Unexpectedly, it is on the aftertaste that the fruit breaks free from the yoke of the oak.

    Elderton Ashmead Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

    “Barossa cabernet sauvignon, aged in French oak.

    As much redcurrant as blackcurrant on the nose but then sweet with cassis/Ribena-like flavours through the length of the palate. Smoky/toasty oak is apparent all the way long though as it breathes the fruit pushes through and ultimately wins the day. There’s a resiny character to this wine which some may find distracting. In general though the power of fruit here is pretty impressive, especially once it’s had time to open up properly.”

    Elderton Ashmead Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

    The bouquet is rich and reserved and gently herbal, with earthy and ‘forest floor’ touches. The wine is full-bodied and loaded with flavour, the tannins bold and robust, with a touch of chewiness... it does deliver bang for your bucks.
