Elefante Tempranillo Shiraz 2015

Elefante Tempranillo Shiraz is part of a range of modern Spanish wines created by Riojan winemaker Javier Murua. Sourced from Castilla la Mancha,  each wine is crafted with a contemporary philosophy, delivering rich and approachable fruit-driven flavours that capture the passion and excitement of the Spanish culture.

Castilla la Mancha, the setting of Miguel de Cervantes’ novel Don Quixote, is the spiritual heart of Spain. The rugged plains are dotted with windmills, olive groves and historic cities. The region’s famed cuisine is highlighted by Manchego cheese and full bodied wines.

For almost a decade, Elefante has brought the fire and passion of Spanish wine to life.

2015 Vintage: After several uncertain and inconsistent vintages, 2015 was a breath of rather warm air. A very hot and dry vintage with record breaking July temperatures was moderated by the high altitude of Manchuela and the age of the vineyards. Light rain and cooler weather in Autumn revitalised the vines before a trouble free harvest and outstanding, intensely flavoured fruit.

Tasting Note:

Deep red in colour with a ripe, expressive nose of berries, blood plums and smoked spice.

Elefante Tempranillo Shiraz 2015’s 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 red wine will gain character and complexity in the cellar for up to five years.
