Grape Variety: Pinot Noir
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 before de-stemming and fermentation in a combination of two tonne open fermenters with ten percent whole bunch and twice daily hand plunging and larger closed fermenters with pump overs. A small component of the blend is cool distilled whilst another undergoes ultra-membrane filtration. With very gentle handling, these components are masterfully blending back into the original parcel of wine to arrive at a well-integrated, lighter finished ABV. The wine post fermentation & blending spends the following three months maturing in stainless steel and 20% in second-use oak before bottling.
Vintage 2022: 2022 will probably be remembered as wet in most parts of Australia. However, in inland vineyards the rain did not hinder, rather it helped vines stay healthy and created favourable conditions for a modest and favourable crop across much of the country. Overall, quality was up but yields were down.
Tasting Note: Light crimson in the glass with aromas of plum cherry and hints of savoury complexity with some nicely integrated oak. The palate is lively with a core of supple red berry flavours enhanced by some captivating spice notes. Bright acidity and fine tannins provide definition to the long finish. A moderate alcohol wine perfect for the lunch occasion to partner many fresh cuisines.
