    Elderton Estate Merlot CONFIRM VINTAGE

    Merlot Barossa South Australia
    Elderton made use of a secret ingredient across their stately range of award winning wines for many years, they originally called on small amounts of estate grown Merlot as an essential component. Eventually the quality of Merlot itself became so exceptional that the decision was made to bottle it as a pure wine. Elderton has now been recognised as one of the finest and most consistent examples of the varietal in Australia, manifesting just how gracious a Barossa Merlot can be, a wine of controlled power, polish and identity, sublime harmony and superb length.
    Available by the dozen

    Elderton has only two small blocks of Merlot, situated towards the back of the vineyard on the highest point where the soils are much sandier and free draining than those which are closer to the river bed. Flourishing under favourable climes, the grapes achieve heightened levels of natural sugar, leading to a significant ripening of intense flavours. Harvested throughout the cool of night, grapes are crushed and inoculated to choice yeasts, vinified over the course of several days and pumped over twice daily for maximum extraction. The finished wine is treated to an extended maturation in a selection of mainly French oak puncheons.
    Dark ruby red colour. Aromas of ripe berry and chocolate, plum spice and earthy notes, caramel and savoury toasty oak. Medium to full bodied palate, plum and cherry spice, cedar and black fruits over a lovely silken texture, Elderton shows gorgeous balance between sweet chocolatey fruit and earthy spicy tannins. A treat with grilled lamb, couscous and jus de viande.
