Elderton Estate Greenock Two GSM - Barossa
REGION: Barossa Valley, Australia
VARIETIES: Shiraz, Mourvedre, Grenache
Everyone knows about Barossa Shiraz by now, but this family estate goes right back to the roots of the story. The Ashmead family moved to the area in 1979, before the boom in Aussie wines. The real estate agent gifted them the 72 acres of vines around the house on offer in order to make the sale. 3 years later, after restoring the very old vineyard (some of the vines were planted in 1915) and Elderton wines was born. This single-vineyard selection is top quality, old-school Shiraz with a little extra something from the Grenache and Mourvedre.
