...Sweet and dense in the mouth, but given verve by pungent minerality and firm acidity. Strong element of tarry oak. A powerfully structured wine...

The Domaine
Elderton was founded in 1916 by Samuel Elderton Talley in the Barossa Valley. In 1979 it was purchased by Lorraine and Neil Ashmead and by 1982, after a period of non-production, wine was once again being made at the estate. The estate today remains owned and operated by Ashmead family, which makes numerous wines. The flagship wines, however, are the Cabernet Sauvignons and Shiraz, which win high ratings from critics.

Press explosively rich, with low acidity, and spectacular concentration and purity. Although not complex, it is mouth-filling, teeth-staining, and ostentatious. 94 points Robert M. Parker Jr.

A super rich and jammy Aussie red sporting a wonderful array of black cherry, wild berry, seductive toasty oak and spice nuances... 95 points Wine Spectator

Food Pairing
Beef, duck, lamb,roast chicken,pheasant and partridge.
