- ABV 14.5%
- Closure: Screw Cap
The 2007 vintage saw the Command vineyard produce an exceptionally low yield resulting in only 20% of the normal average production. Although very little was made the quality of the 2007 Command is up to it’s usual exceptionally high standards. The wine was matured for 34 months in a combination of American & French oak and then given a further 12 months bottle age before being released.
Opaque black dark red colour with deep dark red hue – a little more advanced than previous vintages. The nose displays excellent intensity with top notes of mocha and liquorice followed by some ripe blackberry, confectionary and vanilla. Full bodied, super rich and opulent the palate displays lavish flavours of dark plum, liquorice allsorts and mocha followed by some dark chocolate and vanilla overtones. Silky smooth tannin structure. Superb depth with long persistent aftertaste of mocha, liquorice, vanilla and spice.
Hedonistic drinking now but will also cellar a further 5-6 years (2011-2017)
2007 was a hot, dry, challenging year in the Barossa but the 1894 plantings that go into the Command Shiraz have seen a lot of innings. The roots of these vines go down an estimated 2+ meters, a factor that goes a long way towards stabilizing yields through thick and thin. Still, this was a relatively small vintage producing around 1000 cases. The 2007 Shiraz Command Elderton Estate gives a medium garnet color and very earthy, intense black cherry and blackberry aromas with some loam and iron ore over spice box and espresso, vanilla and licorice. The full-bodied palate is very concentrated juxtaposed by steady crispness and firm fine tannins. This wine is still very youthful with the oak still standing apart in the long layered finish, yet it’s a great example destined for the long haul. Consider drinking it now to 2024+.
