A lifted and expressive nose of red berries, blackcurrants and distinct varietal tobacco leaf and forest floor. The palate is fruit-driven and vibrant with an open and approachable core of supple berried fruits, plums and cassis building to a ripe and mouth-filling back palate. Again classic varietal leafy notes and fine tannins provide an authentic Cabernet taste profile with bright acidity and fine tannins provide definition to the long finish. A perfect each way bet – excellent to drink now but able to improve with up to five years cellaring. Elephant in the Room was created to give consumers exactly what they want – full bodied and mouth-filling wines that deliver maximum pleasure. Sourced from low yielding vineyards in Langhorne Creek and partially matured in French Oak before final blending and bottling by Corey Ryan. Winemaking: Partially hand harvested before de-stemming primarily in closed fermenters with pump overs with a portion of open fermenters., All components blended post fermentation before two thirds were matured in stainless steel and one third was matured in French oak for nine months months before bottling with minimal fining, filtration and sulphur addition.

Up front and instantly likable, the bouquet shows black/blueberry, dark plum, vanilla and cocoa characters with hints of spice and floral. It is succulent and powerfully expressed on the palate, and delivers punchy fruit flavours and silky texture, beautifully supported by supple tannins. Silky-smooth and delectable. At its best: now to 2020.
