Elderton Cabernet Sauvignon 2018


This was a super vintage in the Barossa and the fruit was sourced from vineyards across the region
including the relatively new acquisition at Greenock. It once again shows that when the Barossa gets
it right, cabernet excels. This opens with lifted red berry notes on the nose with high tone perfumes.
A nice cedary character mingles with sweet fruit on the palate creating a succulent rich flavour of
medium weight. It’s a focussed and most stylish wine which extends seamlessly and effortlessly to a
very long finish. This was a great vintage in the Barossa and the younger vine fruit was exceptional, which is what has gone into this wine, which is focussed and stylish before a long finish. The oak treatment is particularly impressive with mostly older French oak puncheons used, allowing the fruit to reveal its bright and lively energy.
