The fruit for Elderton Shiraz is sourced mainly from the Elderton Vineyard situated on the banks of the North Para River, Nuriootpa, Barossa Valley, South Australia. All of Eldertons Shiraz vineyards grow in deep alluvial soils over limestone. Combined with a Mediterranean climate and minimal supplemented irrigation, this creates what one can only describe was the perfect Shiraz vineyard.
The fruit was crushed and inoculated with a selected yeast strain. The 2015 vintage was outstanding with wines ripening before sugar levels became excessive. The wines of 2015 show great intensity and suppleness. This is another amazing vintage.
