"Richly ripe and perfumed, it's gorgeously expressed on the nose showing dark and purple fruit intensity, toasty oak, dark chocolate and warm spice aromas. The palate delivers excellent concentration and plump mouthfeel, wonderfully complemented by plush texture and fine tannins." Sam Kim

The fruit for Elderton Shiraz was traditionally sourced from the Elderton vineyard situated on the banks of the North Para River, Nuriootpa, Barossa Valley, South Australia. Today, this wine includes fruit from the three exceptional estate vineyards that the Ashmead family own. Elderton was transformed from a vineyard supplying quality fruit to other wineries to a winery in its own right in 1982, and have since won much recognition for all of the wines, especially the Shiraz. Barossa Shiraz is now highly collectable worldwide, and the Elderton is always a benchmark for the region.

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.
