Tasting Notes:

Produced from a dry-farmed, 80-year-old vineyard, the 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Ashmead is sensational. Its inky/purple color is followed by a big, sweet nose of vanillin, spice box, cedar, black currants, and flowers. Aged in a combination of 60% American and 40% French oak, it possesses supple tannin, concentrated fruit notes, and a well-delineated, pure, long finish. This young, promising Cabernet requires 2-3 more years of bottle age; it should last 15 or more. Imported by USA Wine West, San Rafael, CA;

Tasting Notes:

Dark, deep red-purple; medium to full-bodied blackcurrant, earth, dark chocolate and bramble fruit; persistent, ripe tannins; good French oak.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Elderton Wines is an Australian winery in Nuriootpa, in the Barossa Valley. The company was founded by Neil and Lorraine Ashmead in 1979. The Elderton wines are made from grape varieties including red grapes Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Zinfandel as well as white grapes Riesling and Chardonnay. In the late 1970s Neil and Lorraine Ashmead returned from the Middle East, settling on the Barossa Valley as the place to raise their sons. In 1979 the Ashmead's purchased the Estate vineyard, which was planted in 1894 by Samuel Elderton Tolley. The family restored the derelict vineyard and the first vintage of wine was produced in 1982. In 1993, Elderton won the Jimmy Watson Trophy, which propelled the winery to prominence. Elderton have continued to have great wine show success, including winning World’s Best Shiraz Trophy at the 2000 London International Wine & Spirits Competition. Today, Neil and Lorraine's sons Cameron and Allister run the business with a strong sustainability focus.[citation needed] Elderton is an industry leader in incorporating green initiatives, including the largest Australian winery installation of a major solar panel grid, of 168 panels, which helps to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. Elderton produces around 30,000 cases of wine per year, depending on vintage conditions. The majority of the production is red wine. The wines are made to show varietal character, regional definition and to show the unique personalities of the Elderton team. Command Shiraz is Elderton's flagship wine, produced from a single vineyard of Shiraz vines that were planted in 1894.
