Elderton ‘Ashmead’ Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

$79.00

96pts – James Halliday – ‘Australian Wine Companion’

93pts – Robert Parker – ‘The Wine Advocate’

The Cabernet Sauvignon Ashmead Elderton Estate comes from a single block on the estate planted before WWII.

“A highly polished example of Barossa Cabernet, dominated by red fruit on the bouquet, & a healthy dose of new oak; the essence of the wine lies in the tightness of the palate; the ample fine-grained tannins & tangy acid pull the fruit to a long, fine & even conclusion” – James Halliday

Full-bodied & opulent in the mouth, the complex flavors are exquisitely balanced by firm fine grained tannins & a good line of acid. It finishes very long “- Robert Parker

“A highly polished example of Barossa Cabernet, dominated by red fruit on the bouquet, & a healthy dose of new oak; the essence of the wine lies in the tightness of the palate; the ample fine-grained tannins & tangy acid pull the fruit to a long, fine & even conclusion ” – James Halliday

“The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Ashmead Elderton Estate was matured in 100% new French oak hogsheads for 18 months. Medium garnet-purple in color, it has an intensely scented nose of cassis, earth, cloves & pencil shavings plus nuances of game & dark chocolate . Full-bodied & opulent in the mouth, the complex flavors are exquisitely balanced by firm fine grained tannins & a good line of acid. It finishes very long. The wine is still a bit tight & primary with the oak jutting out a touch so it’s recommended to keep this one 2-3 years & drink it 2013 to 2020+ ” – Robert Parker
