Elderton 2020 Command Single Vineyard Shiraz


There are times when you need a big, bold, serious Barossa shiraz. This is that beast; a signature Barossa wine that is all about intense concentration and depth of flavour. Old fashioned values, perhaps, but this wine is also nicely poised with all its elements in the right places. Quality fruit has been matured in new French and American oak, going through malo and cellar maturation prior to release. This has power, for sure, but also the structure to cellar for decades should that be your preference. Right now there are "look at me" plum and spicy notes, and it would pair with a steak and kidney casserole. An excellent gift from a reliably excellent producer for a lover of old school wines with a modern twist. $140.
