4.5 STARS 91/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
The Elephant in the Room wines are proudly large in scale and expansive in flavour. Elephant in the Room was created to give consumers exactly what they want – full bodied and mouth-filling wines that deliver maximum pleasure and they deliver on that promise. This is sensational buying. Supple generous wine that totally over delivers in this price bracket.
Campbell Mattinson writes for WineFront: "It’s a major hit in the real world of retail wine sales. It’s from Langhorne Creek, it calls itself a big wine with lots of oak... Sweet blackberry and plum, a floral lift, clean-as-a-whistle presentation of fruit flavour, and a general softness to the mouthfeel. In all though you’d have to say that it’s played to perfection in mouthfeel terms, flavour terms, and marketing terms."
Sam Kim writes: "Deeply coloured and impressively fruited, this gorgeous shiraz shows black/blueberry, cranberry, cocoa, hazelnut and warm spice aromas on the nose. The palate is equally satisfying with excellent fruit weight and intensity, wonderfully enhanced by supple mouthfeel and silky tannins. At its best now to 2021."
