Richard Langford - Barons of the Barossa 2018 Barossa Winemaker of the Year
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.
Elderton Estate Shiraz 2016
Aged in older American oak, the 2016 Shiraz is a blend of estate fruit from Nuriootpa, Greenock and Eden Valley. Faint herbal notes on the nose add nuance to raspberry and cranberry fruit. Full-bodied and creamy-textured, the wine finishes with spicy, peppery notes and a tart edge.
