Winemaker Notes: Wines from 2018 speak of the ease with which the vintage rolled! Sufficient winter rains and a temperate spring allowed for even budburst and steady ripening across all varieties, with Shiraz ripening a little earlier than Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot coming up somewhere in the middle. We love this classic blend with the Cabernet Sauvignon bringing a fresh leafy note and Shiraz with it’s depth of flavour. Merlot finds a way into this blend as it has traditionally been a part of the Nuriootpa estate vineyard. It also helps to bring together the Cabernet and Shiraz, resulting in a seamless integrated wine worthy of aging, whilst still very approachable in its youth. The components for this blend are matured in new and seasoned French oak, allowing for subtle warm spice notes whilst not overwhelming the fruit balance with oak.
Elderton Ode to Lorraine 2018 (In Bond)
Barossa Valley, Australia
In 1979 Lorraine and Neil Ashmead were given a proposal, “If you buy the house, I will give you the surrounding 72 acres of old vines for nothing.” The rambling old homestead looked ideal for a growing family and the Ashmead’s worked tirelessly to salvage and restore this treasure of a vineyard.
In 1982, the first wine was made under the Elderton label. Tough times prevailed but ultimately the vision of the founders shone through and Elderton is today celebrated as a major reason for the rejuvenation of the Barossa. In 1993 Elderton shot to national prominence after winning the Jimmy Watson Trophy. International success ensued.
The second generation took the reins of the business in 2003. Brothers Cameron and Allister believe very strongly in continuing the traditions that began a generation earlier, on the Nuriootpa vineyard. They want to take the family company to the next level, so together they devised a plan to buy great vineyards in other significant sub appellations of the Barossa.
Through using sustainable practices, the hope is that the next generation of the Ashmead family have a lot to work with when they are at the helm.
