new vintage releases - Command & Ashmead

March 1 is a special day for us here at Elderton Wines. It marks the release of the new vintage Command Shiraz. This year, the day is even more special as we are also releasing the new vintage Ashmead Cabernet Sauvignon.

Now available are the 2008 Command Shiraz and 2009 Ashmead Cabernet Sauvignon.

Visit our website for further details on the wines, or to purchase.

5 star review for 2009 Ashmead Cabernet Sauvignon

Pricey Barossa reds usually showcase shiraz but regional cabernet can be impressive, too. The majestic Ashmead 2009 has juicy blackcurrant and blackberry jam aromas. The ripe, full-bodied, profound palate has sustained oomph, with ripe tannins in excellent balance.
5 stars - Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Age Epicure, 21.2.12

Vintage underway

Today is the day that vintage begins. The Chardonnay from our Greenock vineyard is now at the winery! Our Vineyard Manager, Peter, said today that the reds are still a few weeks off being ready, but we are excited to get vintage underway.

Vintage nearing by the day

A quick walk through the vineyard this afternoon, and we thought that you would like to see how the bunches are coming along. This shot is from our beloved, 118 year old Command block.

A proud acheivement
