Price: 108.00


" 94 POINTS (James Hallidays Australian Wine Guide)
A great wine from a great vintage: the colour is dark brick red with purple hues. The aromas are of spicy dark berry fruits with just a hint of toasty vanillan oak. The full-flavoured palate is awash with flavours of plums and black fruits, enhanced by silky fine grain tannins; the finish is rich and smooth. It is drinking beautifully now and will cellar well for a decade.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - Decanter Magazine Australian Shiraz Tasting
"A strong delivery of sweetly charred American oak with a sweetness that follows through to the palate. It is rich and concentrated and infused with similarly toasty characteristics backed by chunky tannins and a powerful kick of alcohol. Drink 2017-2023"

94 points (James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion)
"Deep crimson-purple; includes some malbec and shiraz; matured in a mix of French and American oak. The quality of the vintage shines through this medium to full-bodied cabernet, filling the palate with black fruits and berries, relegating tannins to a back seat role, the oak likewise.."
Another great Cabernet from Leigh Eldredge's high-altitude vineyard.
Colour is dark brick red with magenta hues. Bouquet of dark berry fruits with a hint of smokiness and spice.
Promises offered by colour and aroma are delivered with great depth and length of fruit flavours with a spice accent that is followed by fine grain tannins and a clean finish.

Summer is here - time to enjoy this delicious Sangiovese Rose!
Deep pink in colour, with bright magenta hues. There are aromas of strawberries and glazed cherries, with just a hint of spice. On the palate the berry fruit flavours shine through, with soft, fine tannins and a crisp dry finish with good length and depth.


Eldredge Wines was established by Leigh and Karen Eldredge in 1994 when they renovated an 80 year old stone cottage to serve as cellar door and planted vines in this unique part of the Clare Valley. Varieties planted were Riesling, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Sangiovese, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon at varying aspects in the vineyards.

The vineyards are situated on the westernmost part of the Clare Valley at one of its highest points, up to 530 metres above sea level. The cool breezes which blow off St. Vincents Gulf protect the vineyards from the extremes of the hot climate. This combination of altitude and sea breezes lends cooler climate finesse to the typical Clare ripeness of fruit.

The winery has won a string of Gold Medals in recent years. It's Reisling has won Gold at the Adelaide Show, while both Cabernet Sauvignon and Blue Chip Shiraz have been Trophy winners and multi-Gold Medal winners

This really is a winery on the up and up!
