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 2020: 2020 will certainly be remembered as one of the more challenging vintages for vignerons in the Hills. Bushfires decimated many vineyards and smoke taint then proved a challenge. Although yields were down dramatically we were able to source some parcels of great Pinot Noir fruit.
Tasting Note: Although not in fashion, we think big-flavoured wines deserve a comeback. 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. Everything we love about Pinot but dialled up to 11 on the flavour control button. Aged in small oak barrels, it’s generous and opulent with an unfashionable amount of flavour. Vibrant with dark cherry and hints of briar with a hint of spicy oak. The palate is poised, polished and precise with good complexity and concentration. Pair with crispy duck pancakes.
