|Categories for this Product:
Grape Variety: 100% Tempranillo
Region: South Australia
Winemaker: Corey Ryan
Summary: The Elephant in the Room wines are proudly large in scale and expansive in flavour. Created to deliver full bodied and mouth-filling wines, Elephant in the Room gives consumers what they want- quality, flavour and something to talk about. Each wine is sourced from slow-ripening cool climate vineyards and partially matured in French Oak before final blending and bottling by Corey Ryan.
Winemaking: Partially hand harvested before de-stemming primarily in closed fermenters with pump overs with a portion of open fermenters. All components blended post fermentation before two thirds were matured in stainless steel and one third was matured in French oak for nine months months before bottling with minimal fining, filtration and sulphur addition.
2023 Vintage: Spring was cooler than usual and with more rain events bringing soil moisture levels up. Summer likewise was cool yet with enough sunny days to enable beautiful albeit slower ripening. This made for a later vintage than prior years, but the resultant fruit quality is very, very good.
Tasting Note: Deep purple in colour with aromatic notes of red berry and hints of cola framed by violet and attractive cedarwood spice. The palate is energetic with flavours of plum, blueberry, framed by subtle oak and fine tannins. A generous wine, packed full of flavour that is ready to drink now or will cellar for up to 5 years.
