Elderton 2020 Neil Ashmead Grand Tourer Shiraz


A tribute to the late Elderton co-founder Neil Ashmead, a major rev head, the Grand Tourer Shiraz was first released in 2008. It pays homage to Neil's love of fast cars. He was succeeded by his two sons, Cameron and Allister, who today run the family's Barossa winery. The wine uses Barossa shiraz from the family's Nuriootpa vineyard planted in 1954, co-fermented with fruit from Greenock vineyards planted in 1980. This is medium-bodied, on Barossa terms, with definite dark berry and charcuterie notes, along with hints of pepper and spice. Powerful, with talcum powder tannins, this can be enjoyed now, or cellared medium term. $55. https://eldertonwines.com.au/
