The Octavius Barossa Old Vine Shiraz 2008

The first of 3 Yalumba Octavius Shiraz brought to the Cairns BYO Indian restaurant. No formal notes but you could use the notes for the just posted Elderton Command. The other 2 Octavius drunk on the night were 2015 and 2016 which were excellent but way too young. — 2 years ago

Barossa Shiraz 2010

At eight years of age this one is still incredibly youthful. Mostly dark primary fruit - juicy blackcurrant - with spicy tobacco notes. Drinking swimmingly right now. — 6 years ago

Neil Ashmead Grand Tourer Shiraz 2016

Ripe fruits, creamy mouthfeel, full bodied with lovely acidity and rounded tannins. Not spicy for a Shiraz. — 4 years 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. — 6 years ago

Barossa Command Single Vineyard Shiraz 2002

Others say it all in much more detail below—big stewed purple fruit, smoke, tar, pepper, tannins resolved, balanced, better acid than I was expecting, not totally my thing but impressive — 5 months 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. — 5 years ago
