In making Elate Bill wanted to produce a wine in the style of an Australian iconic wine known as Grange.
From our first experimental vintage in 2008 our Elate Grange Cuvée has been a fine homage to one of the world's most prestigious iconic wines.
Primarily Shiraz driven and always with a secondary percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon, Elate is a beautifully seductive, modern wine that combines some of the best qualities of great wines of Bordeaux and the Rhone.
In the mouth, a flowing of soft, then elegant sweet, earthy, pepper, berry and smoke Syrah character which really defines this wine.
Moderately firm tannin and acidity with a soft clove finish are appropriate to the weight, intensity and texture of this wine.
The season caused us a lot more time in the vineyard trimming fruit or pulling leaves to assure full fruit maturity and lower than normal yields. We ended up with remarkable quality of fruit throughout our range of vineyards which led to a more restrained, elegant style of wine.
