It’s time to talk about the Elephant in the Room


With jumbo flavours and bold, expressive wines, Elephant in the Room has become quite the crowd-pleaser with its popular Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Pinot Gris.

Artfully crafted from grapes grown in the lush vineyards of famed South Australian wine regions such as Limestone Coast and Langhorne Creek – areas renowned for fuller bodied wine styles – Elephant in the Room features bold, expansive flavours crafted to deliver maximum pleasure.

“Since launching our Elephant in the Room range, it has gathered a loyal following for its delicious full-flavours and overwhelming consistency and drinkability,” Fourth Wave Wine general manager Ross Marshall says.

“It’s the perfect wine for an evening glass or to share with friends. The wine is suitable for any occasion.”

First up, the Elephant in the Room Pinot Gris which is a ripe varietal fruit flavours of apple, nashi pear and citrus with lifted florals and spice. A beautiful and expressive mouth-filling wine that finishes crisp and fresh. A very versatile white that marries equally well with white fish or pork dishes.

Elephant in the Room Pinot Noir – medium red in colour with vibrant aromas of dark plums, cherry and hints of forest floor. The palate is fruit-driven with a core of supple red berry and cherry flavours highlighted by a spicy complexity. Bright acidity and fine tannins provide definition to the long finish. Perfect with duck or mushroom risotto. RRP $15.00. Also available in a smaller 375ml bottle RRP $10.00 – perfect for parties.

The Elephant in the Room Tempranillo is an aromatic and fragrant example of Australian Tempranillo that is juicy, soft and supple. It has vibrant aromas of red fruits with hints of cola, anise and raspberry jam.

As befitting Tempranillo, it has soft, supple tannins and low acid so it’s remarkably food friendly and delivers a mouthful of delicious vital fruit, a great depth of flavour and a satisfying finish. Try it with chargrilled Chorizo or an antipasto plate with Manchego and olives.

And finally, the Elephant in the Room Langhorne Creek Shiraz – dark purple colour with lifted notes of red berry and blackcurrants framed by violet overtones and subtle cedarwood spice. The palate is dense and plush with flavours of blood plum, blueberry and spice with a supple, slippery mouthfeel framed by subtle oak toast and fine tannins. A generous wine, packed full of flavour that is ready to drink now or will cellar for up to 10 years.

Elephant in the Room boast many other wines in its list which can all be found on the website.
