94 points "Deep crimson, purple hue; a bright and fragrant wine, showing blackberry, licorice, toasty oak and violets on the bouquet; the medium-bodied palate is lively and super fresh, accessible and thoroughly engaging, offering very good value in every respect." Best 2013-2022

94 points "94 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Shiraz "Nuriootpa" is purple/black with a brooding nose of smoke, tar, licorice, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. Full-bodied and voluptuous, it is dense and concentrated, with gobs of spicy black fruit flavors. It will evolve for 3-5 years and drink well through 2020." 90 points Wine Spectator: "Smooth and focused, with a peppermint edge to the red cherry and blackberry flavors, finishing with a layer of sweet spices. Drink now through 2013. 900 cases imported." (02/09) Elderton is also organic and solar-powered. It's one of Australia's two carbon neutral wineries! It was founded in 1982 after years of supplying fruit to other wineries in the area. Located in Nuriootpa ("Nuri" to the locals) the Ashmead family has tended and continually refined their wines over the years. Winemaker Richard Langford, who came to work for them in 2003, has certainly had a hand in this. I've noticed a better integration of wood and an elegance of structure in the wines since he started. This is not to diminish accolades of the past with numerous Jimmy Watson (an honor of the highest order in Australia) awards under their belt. The wine is classic Barossa with warm plum and blackberry fruit framed by notes of chocolate, mocha and some Asian spice. The palate is juicy and rich with impeccable balance and great persistence on the back end. (Jim Chanteloup, K&L Australian Wine Buyer) "
