Barossa Command Single Vineyard Shiraz 2000


Stunning color w/nary a sign of age: huge fog of spearmint & mineral on open. 2hrs lifted, hi-note dissipates to reveal copious black cherry, blackberry & plum pudding, chocolate, licorice, sweet freshly turned soil. Deep intense reservoir of flavors. Extraordinary density & concentration yet a real ballerina... thoroughly enjoyed this on a special day. Has miles to go tho — a month ago

Barossa GSM Grenache Blend 2015

At the Elderton Tasting and Dinner at the Downs Club hosted by co-owner Cameron Ashmead. I preferred this GSM to the Entry Level Shiraz with its sweet plummy earthy fruit and supple tannins. A crowd favourite on the night. — 3 years ago

Eden Valley Riesling 2016

On the nose, lemon, lime, tropicals; mango, melons, and white florals. Made in a nice dry style. However, it does have a touch of sweetness. Body is slightly creamy, 11% alcohol. Palate of green melons, green apple, citrus, very soft minerals, citrus blossoms & white florals with high acidity. Pleasant. — 4 years ago

E Series Chardonnay 2017

Choosing the next Downs Club White wine from 44 masked entries. Great balance between fruit and oak - the former in the peaches/stone fruit style. Very balanced. Amazing QPR selling for $15 on the Elderton web site with a LUC to the Club at under $10. My choice on the night but sadly democracy prevailed and another wine got the nod. — 2 years ago
