Like the Command block, which is an amazing resource to the Elderton Estate, the Ashmead block has consistently produced small parcels of excellent quality fruit. The vineyard was almost destroyed in 1997 to make way for higher yielding vines, however the family made the decision to promote the vineyard to a higher destiny – thus the Ashmead.
Elderton ASHMEAD Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Style||Smooth and rich, yet fresh|
|Aroma||Enticing aromas of blackberry with hints of dark chocolate|
|Palate||Rich ripe berry fruit flavours on the palate, with nuances of floral dried herb. A firm yet balanced tannin structure envelopes the fruit and will soften over the coming years.|
|Drink||Drink now or cellar confidently for 8+ years|
