Elderton Ode To Lorraine 2014

SKU 51092


Style: Rich and sophisticated. Color: Dark ruby. Aroma: Plum, dark fruits of the forest and chocolate. Palate: Warm and generous fruit characters, spiciness and generous length. The Ode to Lorraine is a blend of the finest barrels of each of the Elderton Nuriootpa vineyard varietals. Each year, through meticulous work on the tasting bench, we select a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot which best reflects the nuances of each variety. The 2014 vintage is a blend of parcels, fermented in concrete open fermenters, with selected barrel ferments and press cuts, giving warm and generous fruit characters, spiciness and generous length, whilst still being a Cabernet Sauvignon dominant blend.

Wine AdvocateDeep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Csm Ode To Lorraine is youthfully mute at this early stage, offering a glimpse at blackberry and black currant notes with touches of tree bark, espresso, bay leaves and black pepper. Medium-bodied, the palate is taut with a good core of fresh, primary black fruits supported by firm, chewy tannins and finishing with gentle herbal notes.
