Summary: The Elephant in the Room wines are proudly large in scale and expansive in flavour. Ignoring fashion and braving the scorn “wine thought police” Elephant in the Room was created to give consumers exactly what they want – full bodied and mouth-filling wines that deliver maximum pleasure. Each wine is sourced from slow-ripening cool climate vineyards in the Limestone Coast of South Australia and partially matured in French Oak before final blending and bottling by Corey Ryan.
Vineyards: Sourced from established vineyards in the coastal Mount Benson district of the limestone coast. The sheltered aspect and consistent temperatures combine to ensure the retention of natural acidity in the elegant fruit harvested whilst promoting long, slow flavour development.
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.
Vintage 2021: If 2020 was all about the heat, then 2021 will be remembered as the wet season.

A cool and dry summer meant even ripening was achieved between dry and rainy spells and the ensuring fruit quality was excellent and for once yields were up making for a bumper harvest in 2021.

The wine displays leafy notes and provides an authentic Cabernet flavour with bright acidity and a long finish. perfect cooler weather drinking with a lamb rack.
