A wine score is the quickest, simplest way for a wine critic to communicate their opinion about the quality of a wine. Professional wine rating scores from a wide range of critics, for example Robert Parker's Wine Advocate and Wine Spectator, are usually adjusted for the 100-point scale. A mean of these scores is presented for specific vintages of a wine, as well as across all vintages.

Elderton Fifteen Shiraz 2017
About The Wine
The 2017 Fifteen Shiraz—to be released next year—is embryonic, showcasing blueberry and blackberry fruit and a veneer of French oak. It's full-bodied, concentrated and rich, densely packed with layers of slowly unfolding flavor, notes of cracked pepper and licorice and hints of mocha on the long finish. The fruit is from a parcel of vines planted in 1915 in the Greenock subregion of Barossa. RP
A good marriage of food and wine ideally provides more pleasure than enjoying either one separately. As each of us have different sensitivities to various flavours and preferences, the definition of 'perfect pairing' varies, and this makes up the fun part of food and wine pairing.
The wine, hailing from the 2016 vintage, is a supreme example of rich and luscious Barossa Shiraz. On the Palate, Rich, round, spicy and intense with great length and complexity.
Elderton Fifteen Shiraz 2018 (Helbig 1915)
Blackberry and plum with spicy cloves and a touch of aniseed. Rich and structured, brooding with spicy plums and ripe fruit. A firm, long tannin structure underpins and carries the fruit through the palate.
Elderton Fifteen Shiraz 2013
Sourced from a tiny single block of vineyard planted in 1915, the very deep garnet-purple 2013 Fifteen Shiraz is a brand new, 100% Shiraz wine aged in 100% new French oak. It opens to an incredible nose loaded with dark chocolate and crushed blueberries, plums, cloves, raw meat, licorice, tar and a whiff of incense. Big, powerful and concentrated, it is built like a brick house and framed by firm, grainy tannins. It finishes quite earthy and long in the finish. RP
Elderton Fifteen Shiraz 2015
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Fifteen Shiraz has a profoundly scented nose of creme de cassis, black forest cake, cedar box, Marmite, chargrill and dried mulberries with spicy touches of cinnamon stick, vanilla and cloves. Concentrated, full-bodied and packed with berry preserves and spice flavors, it has a firm backbone of rounded tannins and ample freshness, finishing long with the oak poking through slightly. RP
