There are a number of blocks of Cabernet on the Elderton estate vineyards at Nuriootpa, Craneford and Greenock. Some of the best parcels from our three vineyards sites are blended to create this Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes, which are lovingly tended to by Peter Wild and Conrad Pohlinger, are mainly harvested at Baume around 13.5 - 14.5, reached with the help of our Mediterranean climate and a long dry Autumn. A larger proportion of Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has been used in this vintage blend, as the ripening conditions allowed for fuller flavours and tannin ripeness in our Craneford vineyard. This has given our 2018 Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon a lovely floral lift.
Fresh varietal blackberry and wild thyme with hints of dark olive. Concentrated dark fruits and hints of clove and dark chocolate, supported by very fine elegant tannins and a seamless finish.
