Elefante Tempranillo Shiraz 2016
Deep red in colour with a ripe, expressive nose of berries, blood plums and smoked spice. The palate is rich and opulently fruited packed with dark berried Shiraz fruit matched by structured, savoury Tempranillo and framed by silky tannins. Impressively complex and well balanced, this wine will gain character and complexity in the cellar for up to five years.

The Wine Front – Elefante Tempranillo Shiraz routinely offers excellent value. That said, this 2016 release is one out of the box. They’ve nailed this release. It’s jubey and berried and has a good bit of chew to the finish. It’s a generous style with a good sense of shape. There’s a nod to savouriness but no more than that: it’s all berried goodness, and beautifully well crafted at that.
