Winemaker Richard Langford crafts distinctly classic, yet refined, Barossa reds.

Press Review

    Elderton Command Shiraz 2014

    Hewn of 1894 ancient vine oomph and tannin management of aplomb, this is power corseted by a filmy, gossamer texture and sheer, strident vinosity. Put it this way, the wine could come from nowhere else, yet the overall impression is one of Elderton's newfound restraint. Oodles of dark fruit, anise, tar, camphor and a Cadbury milk chocolate creaminess coat the palate. There is a barrel ferment smokiness, too. The extraction levels are a point; the use of French and American oak sensitive. All is in a harmony and perfectly suited to the style.

    Elderton Command Shiraz 2014

    From vines planted in 1894, the 2014 Command Single Vineyard Shiraz aged in a combination of French and American oak (80% new). Aromas of smoky camp-fire and vanilla lead the way, followed by expressive raspberry fruit. It's full-bodied and lush across the palate, creamy in texture, impressive in its concentration and balanced by a crisp, fruit-driven finish. Quintessential Barossa Shiraz.

    Elderton Command Shiraz 2014

    Thumping Barossa shiraz from Elderton. Single vineyard.

    It’s a big, sweet, bruising shiraz but it’s also a well balanced one. It lays asphalt, toffee, milk chocolate and dense blackberried fruit flavour down in powerful – not to mention emphatic – style. It’s smoky, clovey, licoricey and raked with dark, earth-splashed tannin. Warmth is everywhere but flavour washes with it. It’s an excellent example of the bigger, almost to the point of exaggeration, style of shiraz.

    Elderton Command Shiraz 2014

    Very good colour. Rich and complex bouquet, lots of smoked meats, char and spice and earth aromas, complex and harmonious. Smoky oak. Very ripe. Good intensity in the mouth but there are firm oaky tannins supporting it. The wine is solid and full-bodied, firm and upright, but appealing. A keeper.

    Elderton Command Shiraz 2014

    Notes of smoke and toast set the stage for the berry and plum flavors, showing a firm backbone and a supple texture. Elegant and spicy on the long finish. Drink now through 2028.
