Elderton 2019 Barossa Shiraz
2019 presented a challenging year with small berries and intense flavour in our Shiraz. Careful cap
management ensured gentle extraction from the skins and seeds, whilst avoiding harsh bitter tannins. We
fortunately had sufficient Shiraz from our Craneford parcels to freshen the blend and harness the bold forward
tannin profile we typically find from Greenock fruit. Post fermentation our single batches were put to a
combination of new and used oak for malolactic fermentation and maturation before blending.

Full bodied, rich, classic. A vibrant dark purple, black forest fruits and a hint of spiced crème caramel.
