Elderton Western Ridge Grenache Carignan

Elderton Western Ridge Grenache Carignan

This blend commands attention, enticing you to savor its flavors and appreciate its subtle finesse. Despite its lightness of touch, it boasts laser-like precision in its acidity, accompanied by fine, grainy tannins that complement the delightful red fruit and spice flavors. It embodies the essence of the Barossa region without the overpowering intensity. In summary, it's a truly delightful wine.

The Ashmead family's legacy continues to shine through Elderton, where Julie Ashmead, the fifth-generation winemaker at Campbells in Rutherglen, leads production, overseeing viticulture and winemaking. Elderton boasts four vineyards across the Barossa and Eden Valleys. The Craneford Vineyard in the latter is planted with Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling, and Chardonnay, while the Mengler Hill Vineyard, acquired in 2022 from the Mattschoss family, features old-vine Shiraz, Cabernet, Riesling, and Grenache. The original estate vineyard, Nuriootpa, dating back to 1894, is planted with Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. Additionally, the Greenock site, purchased in 2010 and planted by the Helbig family in 1915, includes Shiraz, Grenache, Carignan, Mourvèdre, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Semillon.
