Elderton Neil Ashmead Grand Tourer Shiraz 2018

Share

This is a wine to recognise the contribution of co-founder Neil Ashmead and his passion for both wine and cars. This used to be from one block but is now predominantly from old vines at Elderton and more recently from the Greenock vineyard. The Greenock vines are about 40 years old with the Elderton vines now close to 80 years old. This is stylish and medium weight with a delightful elegance and purity. There is nice crisp acid on the finish that adds to its liveliness. It was only matured in French oak with a reasonably high, but not too excessive, new oak component sitting at 60%. The wines has a grainy mouthfeel and is brilliantly bright and beautiful with plummy, spicy red fruit characters. The alcohol is quite low and as a result it is a wine that can be enjoyed young.
