One of Elderton Estate’s Elite range of wines, Ode to Lorraine is on "dangerously good form" in 2015 (Suckling). Magnificent Barossa Valley fruit is given the Rolls Royce treatment before 24 months in oak. A lavish, full-bodied 94 point superstar.
"Floras and fresh cassis with blue plums and blackberries. A brilliant wine with a super long palate"
James Suckling 94 Points
First planted with vines in 1894, this Barossa Valley site was bought by the Ashmead family in the 1970s. Since 1992, they have used its grapes for this top of the range red that honours Elderton’s co-founder, Lorraine Ashmead. Each year, this vineyard’s finest Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot are blended according to the strengths of the varietals that vintage, then aged for 24 months in mostly French oak barrels. The result is a silky, powerhouse red that has made ‘The World’s Top 100 Wines’ and secured 94 points from James Halliday. This 2015 offers black fruit, liquorice and tobacco flavours with silky tannins and a generous finish. A superb example of Barossa’s finest, best paired with red meat, any time over the next 10 years.
