External Reviews for Elderton Shiraz
Bright blackish hue. Full-bodied. Balanced acidity. Highly extracted. Moderately oaked. Mildly tannic. Plums, chocolate, spice. Opulent aromas carry a porty level of richness and intensity. Round, lush and voluptuous in the mouth with a thick and seamless quality. All curves - no corners. Drinking beautifully.
Funky and austere up front, this shifts in the end as red berry flavors fill it with juiciness. What at first seems dry turns out to be simply closed, beeswax enclosing the honey within. Several years of bottle age should release more of the flavor.
A fairly priced, top flight example of a Barossa Valley Shiraz, Elderton's 2002 boasts a huge bouquet of creme de cassis, blackberries, asphalt, smoke, and earth. Muscular and full-bodied, with supple tannin, a silky texture, and a voluptuous finish, this gorgeous effort can be drunk now and over the next decade.
Ripe and distinctly cedary, with a minty edge to the dark, dense, chewy cherry and spice flavors, persisting on the firm finish. Best after 2006. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
A fashionable Shiraz, its flashy scents of new oak glint over succulent black plum fruit. The tannins are firm and finely integrated, the acidity tightens and lifts the wine effortlessly across the palate. It tastes expensive, and quite good.
Smells smoky sweet andmdash; like fruitcake, nut and barbecue smoke. On the palate, the wine is narrow, rather than round and mouthfilling, with fresh herb, plum and blackberry flavors dominating. Itandrsquo;s a very good wine, but falls short of anything more.
The 2003 Shiraz Barossa boasts a dense purple color, aromas of creme de cassis, asphalt, smoke, and earth, well-integrated, sweet, toasty oak, and a big, full-bodied, concentrated personality. Great fruit, huge body, sweet tannin, and a long finish suggest it should hit its peak in 2andndash;4 years, and last for 12andndash;15.
