Elderton has a proud history of producing great dessert wines and we are extremely excited to now continue this journey with the fourth vintage produced with fruit from our own Greenock vineyard. This wine continues to be very popular, especially with visitors to cellar door.
Our vineyard, located in Greenock in the west of the Barossa Valley was added to the Elderton family in 2010 and is a great addition to the portfolio. The 60 acre vineyard has plantings back to 1915 and a terroir that has been in demand by many of the Barossa's elite winemakers. 12 - 44 year old Semillon vines were cordon cut and the fruit allowed to desiccate for 3 weeks on the vine.
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Golden Semillon flaunts a pretty nose of honeyed lemon, marmalade and musk with hints of honeycomb and toast. With an equally lovely and sweet, rich palate that gives a good number of flavor layers matched by just enough freshness, it finishes long. Drink it now to 2020+.
