Elderton Helbig 1915 2018

The 2018 Helbig 1915 Shiraz is the new release of the wine previously just named Fifteen – their remarkable and oldest single vineyard wine from their family owned vineyard in Greenock. Faced with some confusion, the Ashmead family decided to extrapolate the name to Helbig 1915, honouring the family that planted this vineyard on the north eastern corner of Greenock in 1915.

There has already been much written and said about the quality of the 2018 vintage and the winemakers of the Barossa are right to be excited by it. Good rains in winter were followed by a pleasant spring and a lovely Indian summer where the usual spikes in heat never really came.

This allowed the harvest to come in gently, and the fruit, Shiraz in particular, looked superb.
