Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"The fruit for Elderton Shiraz was traditionally sourced from the Elderton vineyard situated on the banks of the North Para River, Nuriootpa, Barossa Valley, South Australia. Today, this wine includes fruit from the three exceptional estate vineyards that the Ashmead family own. Elderton was transformed from a vineyard supplying quality fruit to other wineries to a winery in its own right in 1982, and have since won much recognition for all of the wines, especially the Shiraz. Barossa Shiraz is now highly collectable worldwide, and the Elderton is always a benchmark for the region.

The 2014 vintage was outstanding with wines ripening before sugar levels became excessive. The wines of 2014 show great intensity and suppleness. Aromas of black forest fruits, chocolate and vanilla. On the palate, plum and berries, chocolate and a spice finish."
5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"The gorgeous bouquet shows blackberry, mixed berry compote, mocha, cedar and espresso characters, followed by a sumptuous palate that is powerful and delectable. The wine offers terrific fruit weight and richness, combined with fabulous oak infusion, finishing superbly long and velvety. At its best: now to 2026."
92/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, November 2016 (2014 Vintage)
"It offers a whoosh of syrupy soft flavour. It’s all plums, redcurrant, cloves and smoky/creamy oak; twist the top and the scents and flavours are at you at a rate of knots, like they have pleasure to sell and the faster the deal is sealed, the better. It will cellar, but there’s no need to. It’s Barossa shiraz in fun-and-frisky mode, though with the requisite depth to satisfy."
90/100 International Wine Report, May 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"The 2014 ‘Estate’ Shiraz from Elderton comes mainly from the Elderton Vineyard situated on the banks of the North Para River, Nuriootpa, Barossa Valley, South Australia. The Ashmead’s utilize fruit from three Elderton Estate Vineyards, (Nuriootpa, Greenock and Craneford) some as old as 100-years to create this Shiraz. This opens to a deep purple color, followed by profound aromas of boysenberries, blueberries and plums woven together with pepper, forest floor, dried floral and loamy notes all taking shape in this expressive red. On the palate this is full-bodied and well structured, as it is backed by lovely underlying acidity, which adds a gorgeous layer of freshness to the bold fruit, making for a wonderful long, supple finish. While this is delicious now, it should also continue to age nicely with some short-term cellaring. (Best 2017-2023)"
