Elephant In The Room Small Barrel Shiraz (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 Barossa Valley. The sheltered aspect and consistent temperatures combine to ensure the retention of natural acidity in the elegant fruit harvested.
Winemaking: The fruit is partially hand-harvested before de-stemming and cool fermentation in small two tonne open fermenters with regular hand plunging. Matured in small seasoned French oak (20% new French) for six months before bottling with minimal filtration and sulphur addition.
Vintage 2021: One of the best vintages in the last decade for the Barossa in 2021 with vignerons ecstatic with the quality of the fruit. Good rainfall over winter ensured the soil retained moisture over the early part of the growing season. A warm - but not ridiculously hot - Summer followed with dry conditions ensuring an even ripening all the way up to harvest. A vintage that will be celebrated in the region.
Tasting Note: It may be the fashion to pull back on the flavour but there’s no way to control the gargantuan flavour of the Barossa that is expressed in our new splendiferous Shiraz. This is a full throttle taste of what the Barossa is famous for, big fruit flavours and ample body weight with a nicely complex palate. Matured in small oak barrels, this full of velvety attitude and swagger. Pair with an enormous steak.
