Elderton Command Shiraz is a single vineyard wine that has established a formidable international reputation since the first vintage in 1984. The Elderton vineyard is located on the southern edge of the Nuriootpa township and planted on deep alluvial silt over red and brown earth and limestone. The majority of the rows are orientated east-west (as opposed to the more common orientation of north-south). This enables cooling breezes from the Barossa Ranges to flow through the rows of vines rather than against them. The Command block is planted out with Shiraz vines that are over 100 years old which contributes the monumental layers of flavour and complexity. Matured in a combination of new American and French oak for 30 months and then given a further 12 months bottle age before being released. Opaque black dark red colour with dark red dark purple hue. Superb perfumed nose with lifted scents of ripe blackberry, dark chocolate and liquorice overlaid with some mocha and toasty vanillin oak. Decadently rich and opulently textured the palate delivers a voluptuous flavour profile of ripe blackberry, dark chocolate bullets and mocha underpinned by some toasty vanillin oak finishing with some spice on the back palate. Plush mouthfeel with super slick polished tannins. Magnificent power with exceptionally long, rich ripe blackberry, chocolate bullets, mocha, vanillin oak and spice aftertaste.
