Elderton in James Halliday's Top 100 Wines

James Halliday's 2010 Top 100 has been released, and Elderton's 2009 Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is featured, capping off a stellar year for this wine.

94 points
Bright red-purple, the perfumed redcurrant aromas lead into a palate with abundant juicy, fleshy fruit, fine tannins, and a bare hint of oak from nine months in older French hogsheads.

Light, spicy varietal fruit aromas with very nice citrusy elements. Very dry palate - perfumed and fruity, with a long mineral acid finish. Excellent cellaring potential 5+years.
