International Wine Challenge: Bronze 2008
‘Brilliant’ in one word and a wine that should not garner 92+ given its low price tag. Make no mistake; this is a very serious wine which demands you seek it out.
The Elderton Vineyard, originally planted by Samuel Elderton Tolley in 1894, was planted predominantly with Shiraz; however in the early 1940s, Samuel decided to diversify and thus established some of the earliest planted Cabernet Sauvignon in the Barossa Valley.
There are two blocks on the property which they believe to be planted in the 1940s, and both of these offer an outstanding viticultural resource to Elderton. Year in, year out, they both manage to produce an outstanding quality (albeit incredibly small) crop of densely coloured and richly flavoured grapes. Today, they believe them to be amongst some of the oldest plantings anywhere in the world, certainly older than most in the Napa Valley and Bordeaux.
