Product description

After time spent working in Saudi Arabia, Neil and Lorraine Ashmead, moved to the Barossa. The Ashmeads believed this would be a great place to raise their family. The homestead, in the heart of the township of Nuriootpa, was surrounded by extremely old Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon vines. At a time where demand for Australian table wine was negligible, the vineyard had become derelict. After years of no interest, the real estate agent eventually offered the Ashmeads the 72 acre vineyard as a bonus, as part of the sale of the homestead. Three years later, after restoring the vineyard, Elderton Wines was born.

The second generation, Cameron and Allister, took the reins of the business and today work together to run Elderton Wines, with Lorraine. Cameron and Allister believe very strongly in continuing the traditions that began a generation earlier, on the Nuriootpa vineyard. Wanting to take the family company to the next level, they together devised a plan to buy great vineyards in other significant sub appellations of the Barossa. Through using sustainable practices, the hope is that the next generation of the Ashmead family have a lot to work with when they are at the helm.

Winemaker Notes... A rich and vibrant dark purple. Black forest fruits, dark chocolate and vanilla with hints of coconut. Plum and berries, chocolate and a spice finish. Full-bodied, rich, classic.
