2019 Elderton Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon
Fruit was sourced from three different vineyard sites, Greenock (planted in 1965), Nurioopta which provides structure, weight and richness and Craneford which at a slightly higher elevation adds a cooler edge and fragrance to the blend. Maturation took place in predominately older French oak hogsheads and puncheons for 24 months.
Deep midnight black dark red colour with a dark red black tinged hue. Expressive red to black currant and red liquorice aromas meld into cedary tobacco notes, subtle black olive and spicy bay leaf. Medium to full bodied and showing plenty of richness, the palate is layered with ripe red to dark currant, mulberry and red liquorice fruits which have a plush feel. Infusions of bay leaf, cedary tobacco characters and spice flow onto the back half. Polished tannin structure finishing with a lick of freshness and a long delicious aftertaste.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
