Elderton | Barossa
Winemaker - Richard Langfordhttp://www.eldertonwines.com.au
Elderton Wines is a small, family-owned winery, situated in the heart of Australia's Barossa Valley. The Elderton vineyard which was planted in 1894 by Samuel Elderton Tolley, was purchased by the Ashmead family in the late 1970's who started producing Estate wine from the 1982 harvest. Elderton shot to world acclaim in the early 1990s after producing some of Australia's most highly regarded Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon wines.
The second generation of the Ashmead family, brothers Cameron and Allister, now run the winery day-to-day and are passionate about producing wines that are balanced, varietally correct and classic in nature.
