ELDERTON NEIL ASHMEAD GRAND TOURER SHIRA 2013
First released from the 2008 vintage, the Grand Tourer Shiraz - is named after and produced in honour of Elderton co-founder, Neil Ashmead. Neil, who along with wife Lorraine, established Elderton and was a vital link in creating the Barossa's currently enjoyed status as one of Australia's most important viticultural areas.
Neil was a 'Barossa Road Warrior' like no other. Driving tirelessly from city to city with a car loaded with wine, doing tastings and dinners with whoever would listen. It was his love of fast cars that made this pursuit a little easier, thus the unusual choice for the name of this Shiraz.
Unfortunately Neil passed away prematurely in 1997, however is succeeded by his two sons - Cameron and Allister, who believe this wine to be a very fitting tribute to an amazing individual who was always willing to push the boundaries of expectations and limitations.
