    Winemaker's Notes:

    The color is a rich and vibrant dark purple.
    The wine is full bodied, rich, classic in style, with an aroma of black forest fruits, chocolate, vanilla.

    On the palate the wine has plum, chocolate and spice, with fine lingering and integrated tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Mid-garnet; perfumed red fruit character and a little fruitcake on the bouquet; the palate is medium-bodied, and again with the red fruits winning through; quite lithe and generous, this wine is light on its feet, but delivers plenty of flavor.

    The estate wines begin with the dark crimson-colored 2007 Shiraz Elderton Estate. Aromas of Asian spices, smoked meat, lavender, and blueberry lead to a spicy, ripe, flavorful Shiraz with a bit less depth and a bit more structure than normal, likely due to the challenging vintage. Nevertheless, it is a strong effort that will flesh out over the next 2-3 years and drink well through 2019.

    Vivid ruby. Fragrant aromas of black raspberry, vanilla and violet, with notes of black tea and licorice adding depth. Sweet and expansive but focused, with energetic dark fruit flavors giving way to smoky minerals on the back end. Gentle tannins lend shape to the long, juicy finish.
