A Barossa Blockbuster, Cellar Release 2002 vintage
Command Shiraz, Barossa Valley 2002
The founding Ashmead family, with mother Lorraine supported by sons Allister and Cameron, continues to impress with their wines. The original source was 30ha of fully mature shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and merlot on the Barossa floor; subsequently 16ha of Eden Valley vineyards (shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, zinfandel, merlot and roussanne) were incorporated into the business. The Rohrlach Vineyard, with 75-year-old shiraz, is under long-term lease and managed by the Ashmead family. Energetic promotion and marketing in Australia and overseas are paying dividends. Elegance and balance are the keys to these wines. Exports to all major markets.
