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 wine loving 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 by Corey Ryan.
Vineyards: Sourced from established vineyards in the cooler southern coastal region that is perfectly situated to experience consistent temperatures from closer proximity to the ocean and avoiding the heat of neighbouring inland South Australian regions.
Winemaking: Picked in the cool of the morning to maintain freshness and vitality. Fermented solely in stainless steel with a short time on lees contact for additional subtle nuance and texture whilst maintaining the ultra-important flavour and freshness. Vinified without excessive handling to enable the fruit to be as expressive as possible.
Vintage 2019: After a rather low yielding 2018, the Limestone Coast was back on form after a relatively trouble-free vintage. A dry winter was followed by a cool spring and then a fiercely hot summer in most of South Australia. Limestone Coast faired better than other regions with a crop that exceeded that of the previous year and the quality was top notch.
Tasting Note: Clear, pale yellow in colour. On the nose you’ll find ripe varietal fruit flavours of apple, nashi pear and citrus with white florals and spice. A beautifully lifted and expressive wine with mouth-filling that finishes crisp and fresh. A very versatile wine that pairs well with a number of cuisines.
