Lots of ripe dark fruit, smoky spice, minty and savoury herbs on the palate on this full-bodied Shiraz from the Barossa Valley, produced from 100% estate-grown Shiraz grapes sourced from the Ashmead Family vineyards from 15 to 100 year old vines.

Reviews and Ratings

Elderton 2016 is a lusty, full-bodied 100% Shiraz from the Ashmead Family Vineyards in the Barossa Valley. The Shiraz vines are between 15 to 100 years old. Love the smoky, textured blackberry, mint and fresh green herb flavours on the palate. Finishes smooth and long. Enjoy now and for the next five years. Pair this one with smoky ribs. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
