Second Elephant Appears from the Plains of Langhorne Creek
Restless Farm 'The Elephant' Langhorne Creek Shiraz 2014
Region: Langhorne Creek, SA
Nicholas Bourke has been busy and another of his Restless Farm wines arrived this week. The first and only Elephant to date was the 2009 vintage which appeared briefly on Glug but was mostly sold to retailers in Queensland.
As luck would have it a colleague who purchased some rang the other month to say its is drinking superbly. So five vintages have passed and Bourke has seen fit to release another. He has a style in his head for each animal but I have yet to fathom out what that is.
Though this being the Elephant you can expect something pretty big and I bet will have cellaring possibilities. Animals released since 2008 are a Goat, Goose, Elephant, Bunny, and a Pig. Reports trickle in that they are all drinking well but then again Nicholas is a great wine maker.
