Elderton Ode to Lorraine Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Merlot 2018


The other half of Elderton’s founding duo was Lorraine Ashmead and this is a worthy recognition of her significant contribution. 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.
