Elephant In The Room Small Barrel Chardonnay (6pk)
|Categories for this Product:||
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 flavoured and mouth-filling wines that deliver maximum pleasure. Each wine is sourced from premium slow-ripening cool climate vineyards across South Australia by Corey Ryan.
Winemaking: Picked partially by hand. The majority of the blend was vinified in stainless steel with high solids and oxidative handling with remainder of the blend being barrel fermented with lees stirring. About forty percent was aged in old French oak barriques for six months to add complexity before full malolactic fermentation
Vintage 2022: A wet spring provided adequate soil moisture going in to the growing season. Windy and rainy conditions during spring resulted in lower than usual crops. The summer months were mild facilitating a long ripening period and exceptional flavour and acid balance in white wines.
Tasting Note: Definitely not short on flavour this chardonnay is a homage to the giant wines of yesteryear that gave Australia such a strong reputation. Aged in small oak barrels with a monster mouthfeel it's a Chardonnay that is big and bold with a decadent nutty oak and a moreish mouthfeel. Pair with roast pork and dauphinoise potatoes.
