Description

  • Ripe citrus
  • Florals
  • Subtle minerality
  • Refreshing

Clear, ripe and flavour-filled. This is a classic Fiano wine with citrus and floral scents that flow similarly to the palate along with mineral and chalk in a densely rich yet fresh white wine.

Sourced from established vineyards in the cooler southern coastal region that is perfectly situated to experience consistent temperatures from closer proximity to the ocean and avoiding the heat of neighbouring inland South Australian regions.

This was a challenging year and so very much makes you think of Australia. It was a warmer vintage, very suitable to Fiano given the higher natural acidity in the berry. Only sporadic rains in some parts caused the berries to ripen sooner than prior years. Through great management the resultant fruit is bright and flavourful with a soft acidity. Lucky for us this would be a drink now vintage and this wine will be best enjoyed in its youth.

Picked in the cool of the morning to maintain freshness and vitality. Fermented solely in stainless steel with a short time on lees contact for additional subtle nuance and texture whilst maintaining the ultra-important flavour and freshness. Vinified without excessive handling to enable the fruit to be as expressive as possible.

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.

Food Pairing: Perfect on its own and can accompany many cuisines.

Beautiful wine to have as a substitute for the more known varieties. Pinot Gris lovers should try this
