The fruit for Elderton Shiraz is sourced mainly from the Elderton Vineyard situated on the banks of the North Para River. There are 12 blocks of Shiraz on the Elderton Estate, some as old as 100 years, which grow in deep alluvial soils over limestone. Combined with a Mediterranean climate and minimal supplemented irrigation, this creates what Elderton describe as ‘the perfect Shiraz vineyard’. The grapes are mainly machine harvested in the cool of the night, at an optimum maturity of about 14 – 15 Baume. This allows a quick delivery to the winery for crushing, before any spoilage can occur. Maturation took place in predominately American oak puncheons for 14 months.
Totally opaque black crimson red colour with deep dark crimson red hue. Lifted aromas of blackberry, mocha, liquorice allsorts, toasty vanillin oak and confectionary. Full bodied and filled with ripe opulent blackberry, dark chocolate, liquorice allsorts and spice flavours. Soft velvet smooth tannins with a generous fleshy mouthfeel. Good persistence with long aftertaste of ripe blackberry, dark chocolate, liquorice and spice.
Drink over the next 4-5 years (2011-2016)
