Provenance: ★ ★ ★ ★ `CSM` The Story
`CSM` now known as `Ode to Lorainne` is a Cabernet/Shiraz/Merlot blend added to our portfolio from the 1992 vintage. It was a belief that through blending only the best parcels of fruit from the Elderton Vineyard, a truly wondrous and complete wine could be made that showed the highlights of the three grape varieties. All vintages made of this wine (not made in 1993) have been hugely successful in Australian and International wine shows, as well as with the media. The winemaking team at Elderton believe this is the hidden gem in the Elderton range.
