    Elderton Command Shiraz | Langton's 'Excellent' Classification (VII 2018)

    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. Julie Ashmead leads the winemaking and viticulture teams in crafting distinctly classic, yet refined, Barossa reds that live up to the estate’s history and world class quality.

Press Review

    Elderton Command Shiraz 2018
    From 124yo estate vines in Nuriootpa. Matured 30 months in new American and French oak puncheons. Brooding Barossa shiraz of billowing character. Smoked mettwurst and pan juices. Spicy dark and red berries of all kinds. No small dollop of milk chocolate oak. Quintessential Barossa, replete with generous breadth and enduring length, sustained by fine-ground tannins of considerable endurance.
    Rating: 95 Points

     Elderton Command Shiraz 2018
    Single vineyard. Vines planted in 1894. 30 months in French and American oak. Released in March 2022.
    For such a serious, richly-fruited wine it sure is more-ish, even in its relative youth. It all slides down with such ease. Sweet, soft plum flavours lead gently into (even) darker blackberry; coffee bean oak weds to dark earth notes; clove notes wash through vanilla and redcurrant. It’s seductive courtesy both of its style and of its substance. This is another top-grade release.
