I am a big fan of Command and Elderton wines, so was really looking forward to this. It was an interesting night, made more so because of a fire in Boat Quay on the day of the tasting, which meant a late change of venue. Both Wine Exchange Asia and the venue, Boomerang, did a great job to accommodate the late change of notice.
And now for the wine!
Whilst I was a bit disappointed with some of the wines, I think that, with patience, that a number of these wines will improve (at least I hope so) and will live up to expectations.
My picks of the night:
- 2003 Elderton Command Single Vineyard Barossa Valley Shiraz
- 2002 Elderton Command Single Vineyard Barossa Valley Shiraz
- 2006 Elderton Command Single Vineyard Barossa Valley Shiraz
