The winemaking team at Elderton believe this is truly the hidden gem in the Elderton portfolio of premium reds. A Cabernet/Shiraz/Merlot blend was added to our portfolio from the 1992 vintage. It was a belief that through blending only the best parcels of fruit from the Elderton vineyard, a truly wondrous and complete wine could be made that showed the highlights of the three grape varieties.
The decision was made from the 2002 vintage onwards for the wine to be renamed (from CSM) in honour of co-founder of Elderton Wines, Lorraine Ashmead. This wine is dedicated to a woman who is greatly admired in the Barossa for her passion, dedication and commitment to not only Elderton, but to all the wondrous things our beautiful valley produces.
Estate grown on the Nuriootpa vineyard, with deep alluvial silt over red and brown earths and limestone. The fruit is sourced from Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot blocks planted between 1970 and 2014.
|Variety||Cabernet Sauvignon 58%, Shiraz 38%, Merlot 4%|
|Vine Age||4 - 48 years|
|Maturation||French puncheons, 30% new, for 28 months|
It’s a blend of cabernet sauvignon, shiraz and merlot, which all come from Nuriootpa. It has a delicious sweet plummy blackcurrant fruit intensity, balanced with some nice sappy oak with a little cedary character. It’s very long in the mouth with a delicious, sweet fruit character. Sinewy tannins thread through the ripe fruit, leading into a dry, focussed finish. This is one of the best yet under this label.
