A team approach to ensure best practice in both the vineyards and winery is key to guarantee absolute quality in the bottle. Attention to detail in pruning, picking and winemaking, and using a combination of state of the art facilities and machinery with some tried and true traditional techniques, ensures that the wines of Elderton will always show great brightness, purity and quality.

This traditional Barossa winery seems to be getting better and better… lavishly rich, exuberant, muscular efforts…

James Halliday
