Press Review

    Elderton Neil Ashmead Grand Tourer Shiraz 2017

    Deep, dark red/purple colour and a rich, ripe blackberry aroma, the palate rich and fruit-sweet, ripe and fleshy, with a juicy middle and soft-tannin finish. Lovely wine, rounded and cuddly. Delicious.

    Elderton Neil Ashmead Grand Tourer Shiraz 2017

    Deep colour; an expressive bouquet of plum and diverse black fruits, the medium to full-bodied palate following in the centre of the road, adding a veneer of spicy/savoury notes largely ex oak. A long life ahead.

    Elderton Neil Ashmead Grand Tourer Shiraz 2017

    This is a very bold, expressively fleshy shiraz that has such smooth, silky texture. Ribbon-like weaves of blackberries and raspberries, as well as root beer and other, spicy nuances. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

    Elderton Neil Ashmead Grand Tourer Shiraz 2017

    There's an attractive mint note on the nose of the 2017 Neil Ashmead Grand Tourer Shiraz, but also a ripe, blackberry and blueberry fruit character. It's aged in 50% new French oak, giving it a sense of restrained power and elegance, gentle hints of pencil shavings and a fine, elegant finish. It's a blend of fruit from the 75-year-old vines on the home property, filled out by about 25% fruit from Greenock.
