Winemaker's Notes
"The nose shows dark chocolate and black fruits and olives, with the palate continuing the theme, showing these typical Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon characters, giving weight and generosity to the wine. Ripe tannins add structure while being supple and mouth watering."

Technical Notes
"The hand harvested fruit was fermented in open top concrete fermenters with chilled ferments, hand pumpovers and cap submerging with oak header boards for eight days; the process finished with barrel ferment and malolactic fermentation in new French oak."
Wine Advocate
"95 pts ... Deep garnet in color, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Ashmead has a classic crème de cassis nose with an earthy/meaty undercurrent, cloves, sandalwood and cedar. Medium-bodied, the palate is framed by elegant tannins and is showing evolution but remains very lively through the long finish."

2013 Elderton Cabernet Sauvignon
A yummy, medium- to full-bodied, dark red cherry flavored Cabernet with hints of what we think of as Barossa Valley spice - a kind of peppery dark chocolate - combining very happily with soft tannins on the finish. Terrific with grilled or smoked meats and roasted eggplant.

2013 Elderton Ode to Lorraine
Give it some air and prepare to sing it's praises! A delicious, deep, dark-fruited wine, not at all heavy or overpowering and yet such mouth filling flavors. We get purple berries and dashes of plum, tea, and tannin. Terrific with standing rib roast, turkey roasted in the barbeque, mashed potatoes with buttermilk, and oven roasted root vegetables.
