This wine was formerly labelled Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon but is now labelled 'High Altitude Barossa' to not only reflect the fact that Elderton’s Craneford vineyard sits at an altitude of 390 – 425m but also no doubt to take advantage of the Barossa’s prominence over Eden Valley in the marketing stakes.
‘Elderton have excelled with this very well made under priced Cabernet.’
Matured for 12 months in a combination of old American and French oak puncheons. Opaque black dark red colour with dark crimson red hue. The nose displays top notes of ripe blackcurrant and dark chocolate followed by nuances of mulberry, cedary tobacco and spice. Medium bodied the palate marries richness with an elegant smooth mouthfeel very well. Flavours of ripe blackcurrant and mulberry overlay light dark chocolate followed by some cedar and spice. Velvet smooth tannins with a medium to long aftertaste of blackcurrant, dark chocolate and spicy cedar.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
Bright crimson-purple; a totally delicious cabernet, putting a great vintage, a very good region, and skilled winemaking into a synergistic union; it is full of cassis, redcurrant and a touch of black olive, these fruit flavours precisely matched with French oak. The price is barely believable. Drink By 2027.
