Elderton Command Single Vineyard Shira 2008

Shiraz planted c 1894, upstream of Old Garden vineyard (see the Hewitson wine), valley floor. More loam and richer soil than Old Garden. Picked in 3-4 passes. Open concrete ferment. 30 months in new French and US puncheons. TA 7.0 g/l, pH 3.35. Sweet and ripe and dark with a touch of eucalyptus. Dark cherry chocolate. Stunningly and unexpectedly fresh. Great concentration and depth and purity. With menthol again on the finish. Very (too?) sweet tasting when you go back to it. Julia Harding MW

The 02 and 05 is really good, there’s too much oak in 04 when I tasted, I didn’t try any of the later ones because of the price.

I've had five bottles of '04 Command Shiraz in the past few years and I didn't think it had too much oak. I paid $6×  when first release.how much is the current vintage in Australia?

I think it’s about $100 aud now but the last few vintages has been on a black market deal ,about 40-50% off, these black market deals usually online and supermarket stores, they hide the names and Labels, only tell you the vintage and region,you don’t know what it is until you receive it.

Maybe the oak settle down quite well, when it was first release, it sort of overpower the fruit , the oak flavour is more noticeable Than the fruit. I think they both French and american oak for this wine.

I usually chill wines that are high alcohol before drinking , the reason I ask is because I don’t have aircon at home , during summer time I don’t drink as much. Even with aircon I found that higher alcohol wines doesn’t taste as it should be. Robert Parker Rated most Australian wine very high score on wines that has high alcohol %, Chris ringland wines for example.
