Elderton Ashmead Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

The vines for this single vineyard wine were planted in 1944 and tended by the Ashmead family. The wine spent 18 months is 100% new French oak before being bottled in some kick arse bottles.

Full bodied and rocking booze. The wine is both regional and varietal with masses of plum soaked currants, brandy snaps and chocolate mud cake thrown in. There isn’t a hint of leafiness or capsicum notes that are associated with this variety but this is a statement in quality. Any oak? Yes but it has been totally swallow by the fruit. If you want to impress, this wine will serve that purpose and a bit more.
