Elderton Shiraz 2018
This is the partner to the cabernet and provides further evidence of the quality of this Barossa vintage. The winemaking approach has been all about preserving the fruit vibrancy and allowing it to express all that is appealing about the Barossa in a good year. The sweet fruit benefits from the clever use of American oak creating a profile that is elegant and stylish. It’s a bright and brilliant wine with real palate energy. I particularly loved the balance between the sweet vanillin character and that slightly spicy fruit. Drink it now and enjoy but if you can wait 10 or more years you will have something special.
