Elderton Helbig 1915 Shiraz 3pk 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.
Elderton Fifteen Shiraz 2018
From a parcel of 1915 plantings out in Greenock, this has a very fresh delivery of ultra-ripe dark-berry and plum aromas, as well as chocolate and currants with some orange peel and asphalt. The palate is immensely concentrated and has very rich dark-plum, blackberry and chocolate flavors with a streak of roasted coffee and graphite at the finish. This is very rich, very intense and very deeply fruited with bold tannin architecture.
