We are very proud custodians of the family Estate, located in Nuriootpa, where all of Elderton’s icon wines are produced. In recent years we have been able to acquire other significant sites around the Barossa to further showcase the diverse regionality that exists within the appellation. Our winemaking team works very closely with our viticulturalists, throughout the year, to produce quality fruit with a focus on long term sustainable production, low yields, low irrigation and minimal inputs.
Elderton’s viticultural and winemaking philosophy is one that is shared by all of the great wineries around the world.
The old saying that great wine is made in the vineyard is one that holds very true at Elderton.
A team approach to ensure best practice in both the vineyards and winery is key to guarantee absolute quality in the bottle. Attention to detail in pruning, picking and winemaking, and using a combination of state of the art facilities and machinery with some tried and true traditional techniques, ensures that the wines of Elderton will always show great brightness, purity and quality.
The goal of the Ashmead family is to produce world class wines from entrenched varieties grown in the Barossa from our own vineyard holdings. We celebrate the individual terroirs of each of our sites and aim to produce wines that show true regional history and character, varietal definition and a healthy slice of our own personalities.
