Elderton Command Shiraz 2010
This truly excellent example of Barossa shiraz comes from vines planted in 1894 and from one of the great vintages of the region. Deeply complex, with dark fruits and a decent splash of well-weighted oak. Blackberry and licorice, spices and dark chocolate are all in this wonderful statement of the best in the Barossa, delivered with a degree of finesse and style.

Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Command Shiraz shows off pronounced blueberries and dark chocolate aromas laced with Szechuan pepper and Chinese Five Spice plus a touch of menthol. Full-bodied, very structured and still showing the oak, the palate is fresh, very clean and pure with plenty of spice lingering in the long finish.

Medium crimson-purple, the hue good, although not particularly deep; a very elegant and refined shiraz that fully lives up to its reputation; fragrant red and black fruits have a garland of spicy oak on the bouquet, a message that is faithfully reproduced on the long, medium-bodied palate.

Lush Barossa shiraz smelling of jammy berries, plums, spices and coconut chocolates. The profound, ripe, velvety palate is powerful yet friendly, supported by integrated soft tannins. Rating: 94 Points - Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Age 'Epicure'
Blackberry, plum, dried mint and aniseed, spice, toast and coffee. Full bodied, not heavy especially, with an almost silky web of tannin and quite pronounced acidity. Toasty coconut oak is, of course, a large player in the flavour profile of the wine, though the perky and pure fruit of the boysenberry and blackberry persuasion carries it along without much complain. Long and slightly saline in the aftertaste, and if you’ll humour me, it kind of feels very clearly drawn. Probably will cellar for as long as you want to keep it.
