2014 Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon
Estate Family VineyardsBack to All
The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are grown exclusively on the three Elderton Vineyards situated on the banks of the North Para River in Nuriootpa, on the western ridge near Greenock and the Eastern ranges in Craneford. The 1988 vintage was chosen by Qantas for first class, the 1992 vintage won the prestigious Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy in 1993 and for the next two years won Gold and Trophy at the Barossa Wine Show. The 1994 vintage gave Elderton its first international Gold medal at the 1996 London International Wine Show. The 1998 once again won Gold and Trophy, in the Barossa Wine Show for the Best Regional Cabernet, and the 1999 won a trophy in Belgium for the best wine imported into the country. A proven consistent performer, we believe that the 2014 will easily continue in this trend.

94 points - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2016
Claret style with a modern twist. Effortless flow of fruit and oak before sinewy, herb-strewn tannin pulls it all into line. It’s not deep or heavy, but it has presence and length. And it feels beautifully well polished.
92 points - The Wine Front, Campbell Mattinson, Nov 2016
Barossa cabernet, for now or later... It has polish too. It works well.
Wine Spectator, March 2017
Elegant and bright, with juicy cherry and raspberry flavours that are transparent. Accents of fresh herb and pepper linger on the polished finish.
