Elderton Shiraz 2016 (Barossa Valley Estate Grown)

Tasting Notes
Elderton Shiraz 2016 style is a full-bodied wine, rich in flavour with a vibrant dark purple hue.

Aromas of black forest fruits, chocolate, vanilla abound.

Delicious plum and berries flavours on the palate with chocolate and a spice finish.

Drink now or cellar confidently for 10 - 15 years from vintage.

"Barossa shiraz, mature vines (23-122 years), American oak (second and third fill). From Nuriootpa, Greenock and Craneford.
Luscious shiraz. A very good release. Redcurrant, plum and coal flavours combine with sweet spice, clove and bitumen. It’s succulent and lively from start to finish; the close is then blessed with a fine mesh of tannin. Mouthfeel and flavour are on song here."

The fruit for Elderton Shiraz was traditionally sourced from the Elderton vineyard situated on the banks of the North Para River, Nuriootpa, Barossa Valley, South Australia. Today, this wine includes fruit from the three exceptional estate vineyards that the Ashmead family own. Elderton was transformed from a vineyard supplying quality fruit to other wineries to a winery in its own right in 1982, and have since won much recognition for all of the wines, especially the Shiraz. Barossa Shiraz is now highly collectable worldwide, and the Elderton is always a benchmark for the region.

There are many blocks of Shiraz on the three Elderton estate vineyards, some as old as 100 years. Some of the best parcels from each of these single sites (the blend for the Elderton Shiraz 2016 from these sites is - Nuriootpa 53%, Greenock 26% and Craneford 21%) are blended to create what one can only describe as ‘the perfect Barossa Shiraz’. The grapes, which are lovingly tended to by Peter Wild and his team, are mainly harvested at an optimum maturity of about 14 – 15 Baume.

The vines ages are between 23 & 122 years of age. Harvested between 25th of February & 17th March 2016. Maturation: Predominantly second and third fill American puncheons for 24 months. Winery Notes
