    Winemaker's Notes:

    A rich and vibrant dark purple. Chocolate, vanilla and plums on the nose. Great power to palate, with loads of rich plummy and chocolate flavors. Also showing fine, lingering and integrated tannins.

    A great match for richly flavored meats, game or mature cheddars.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright ruby. Sexy oak spices and blackberry on the nose, with a deeper boysenberry quality developing with air. Sappy and velvety in texture, with penetrating dark berry, bitter cherry skin and baking spice flavours. Finishes broad, sweet and long, repeating the dark fruit notes and leaving an alluring violet pastille note behind.

    International Wine Cellar

    Elderton is making classically styled Barossa Shiraz, marrying raspberry fruit with rich chocolaty overtones and wrapping them in a soft cocoon of supple tannins and balanced acidity. Drink now–2014.

    Retains bright hue; has good structure and length to its black fruits which are framed by gentle vanillin oak.
