Neil Ashmead Grand Tourer Shiraz

GOLD MEDAL – 2020 Decanter World Wine Awards

Judges Comments
Beautifully layered nose of black cherry, blackberry and, then the palate is spiced and graced with delicate vanilla, cinnamon and seductive, silky tannins.


Named in honour of co-founder of Elderton, Neil Ashmead, Cameron and Allister believe the wine is a fitting tribute to their dad – an amazing individual who was always willing to push the boundaries of expectations – it is a different expression of Shiraz than that typically expected of Elderton Shiraz.


Reviews of the 2017 Neil Ashmead Grand Tourer Shiraz:


“Lovely wine, rounded and cuddly.  Delicious.”   95 points, Huon Hooke, The Real Review

“This is a very bold, expressively fleshy shiraz that has such smooth, silky texture.”

“…an expressive bouquet of plum and diverse black fruits, the medium to full-bodied palate following in the centre of the road… A long life ahead.” Halliday Wine Companion

The 2017 Neil Ashmead Grand Tourer Shiraz is available for tasting at Cellar Door or you can purchase online and have delivered to your door, Australia wide.
