The Elderton Command Shiraz has established an enviable reputation since the first vintage in 1984. It is often regarded as one of Australia’s best and most highly acclaimed wines. Accolades have come from the world over for vintages such as the 1992, which was chosen by the influential wine critic Robert Parker in his U.S. magazine the Wine Advocate as one of the world’s Top 80 wines. The 1995 Command was awarded 95 points by Wine Spectator and placed in their Top 100 wines; the 2000 was awarded 97 points by the same magazine and placed 27 in their Top 100. The 1996 Command won the trophy for the Best Shiraz in the World at the London International Wine and Spirit Competition.

First planted in 1894 by German settlers, the Nuriootpa vineyard was purchased by Samuel Elderton Tolley in 1916 and named The Elderton Estate. After 60 years of selling the fruit to his family, Samuel sold the vineyard to the Ashmead family in 1979, who made the first Elderton Label wine in 1982.

Elderton’s vision is to create excellence, from distinguished vineyard sites, and in 1993 the vineyard shot to national prominence after winning the Jimmy Watson Trophy. Today, Elderton is run by the second generation of the Ashmead family, brothers Cameron and Allister. It encompasses three vineyards that highlight individual terroirs of the region, with the brothers keen on buying vineyards in other significant sub appellations of the Barossa.

Elderton has been awarded a 5 Red Star Winery in the 2023 Halliday Wine Companion.
