Press Review

    Elderton Command Shiraz 2017
    From the 1894 vineyard; open fermented and matured for 30 months in new American and French puncheons. The sheer intensity of the palate is a reflection of the cool vintage and the inherent quality of the fruit. Elegance and power go hand-in-hand , the finish and aftertaste all class.

    Elderton Command Shiraz 2017
    This does command respect thanks to the fruit coming off 123yo vines and the care with it from that moment right through to the winemaking. It is powerful and divine. Lush with the dark fruit coated with chocolate, pepper and coffee. The palate feels all velvety with the tannins neatly placed, the oak integrated and with a glass in hand, a sense that all's well with the world.

    Elderton Command Shiraz 2017

    The wine has been crafted into such a seamless and smoothly textured wine... The chalky tannin feel contributes greatly to the appealing texture and mouthfeel. Rich dark chocolate and lush primary fruits with a spicy vanillin overlay. Dense and concentrated yet with a degree of subtlety and finesse with a palate that sits more in the medium weight zone than the more traditional big boy full body.

    Elderton Command Shiraz 2017

    This year’s release has a floral element. A leather element. And a refreshing element. It’s 14.9% alcohol and yet it has an elegance; it’s its usual plush self but it has vigour. There’s a clear line of aniseed-like flavour, a rush of plum, smears of coffee and vanilla. It feels and tastes firm and solid and yet, as I say, there’s plenty of juice and bounce. It’s presents a deep-set, throaty version of grenache, though of course it’s shiraz. It’s drinking pretty well already but it should age a treat.
