    Elderton was founded by Neil and Lorraine Ashmead in 1982, and is now run by their sons, Allister and Cameron. Built around the famous Command vineyard in the centre of Nuriootpa, Elderton also has its own vineyards in Greenock and the Eden Valley. 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

    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.

    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.
