Elephant In The Room Small Barrel Pinot Noir (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.
Vineyards: Sourced from established vineyards in the Adelaide Hills. The sheltered aspect and consistent temperatures combine to ansure the retention of natural acidity in the elegant fruit harvested.
Winemaking: Picked partially by hand. 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. All components blended post fermentation before the final wine was in small french French oak barrels for 6 months months before bottling with minimal fining, filtration and sulphur addition.
Vintage 2022: A wet vintage across most of Australia in 2022 but the Adelaide Hills faired very well. The climatic conditions were cool to warm with no real heat wave impacts. The season was delayed with a cool, dry summer but was rescued with a long Indian style summer well into Autumn. This resulted in slow ripening and optimum flavour development.
Tasting Note: This Super Duper Pinot Noir is a perfect example of what a wine drinker wants and not what the wine police tell us it should be. Aged in small oak barrels, it’s generous and opulent with an unfashionable amount of flavour. Brimming with red berries and savoury nuances with a hint of spicy oak. The palate is perfumed, polished and precise with good complexity and concentration. Pair with mushroom risotto.
