Elderton Wines are one of my favourite wineries, the winery is in Nurioopta within the Barossa Valley, South Australia. The vineyard was originally planted in 1894 by the Scholz family from Germany. In 1916, the vineyard was purchased by Samuel Elderton Tolley whose family held onto the property until 1975 when they sold it to the Ashmeads, Lorraine and Neil. For the next 7 years they worked to restore the vineyard and started to produce wines in 1982. These days the winery is run by their sons, Cameron and Allister.
As an added bonus the dinner was held at New Ubin Seafood, one of my favourite restaurants in Singapore, where the food is always great, at a good price and the dining is casual.
Another great thing about New Ubin is that they don’t charge corkage, which is rare in Singapore.
My favourite dishes of the night were the Salt & Pepper Squid and the Korubuta Pork Ribs.
New Ubin is a place that I recommend to anyone who likes Asian Food, it is one of those places that even locals don’t know too much about, hidden away in an industrial park within Singapore suburbia.
On this night we tasted verticals of Elderton’s two flagship wines, the Command Single Vineyard Barossa Shiraz and Ashmead Single Vineyard Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon. The line up for the night was 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2008 Ashmead and the 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007 Command.
