Wine Description

The fruit was harvested by hand, with five small parcels harvested over five weeks to attain complex nuances. Fermented in open top concrete fermenters with chilled ferments, hand pump-overs and cap submerging with oak header boards for eight days; the process finished with barrel ferment and malolactic fermentation in new French & American puncheons. Aromas of blackberry fruit, aniseed and spices carry through to the palate which is rich, warm and generous.

Elderton Command Shiraz has established an enviable reputation since the first vintage in 1984. It has aromas of blackberry, aniseed and spices that carry through to the palate which is rich, warm and generous.
