ELDERTON

Command Shiraz, Barossa Valley 2002

South Australia
Size: Six Pack

A Barossa Blockbuster, Cellar Release 2002 vintage

$1,988

Tasting Notes

From a cool dark cellar another stunning parcel of beautifully aged, perfectly mature Shiraz in the form of Elderton's stunning single vineyard Command. As Robert Parker eulogised in his 95 Point Rating- "A stunning effort, the 2002 Shiraz Command exhibits an inky/blue/purple color as well as a sweet perfume of camphor, blueberries, blackberries, acacia flowers, and smoky, toasty oak. Full-bodied, opulent, and viscous, with huge, but sweet tannin, decent acidity, and a muscular, long, 40+ second finish, this is a classic, potentially long-lived, Barossa blockbuster. It’s accessible now, but ideally needs another 2-4 years of bottle age, and should keep for two decades." Treat yourself to a pack of three or six of Old School Barossa and ejoy incredible savings versus the current release and market prices of this wine.

ELDERTON

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.
