Elephant Hill (Hawke’s Bay) 2018 Syrah

93 points - Cameron Douglas MS
"With aromas of ripe black currant and red pepper corn, wild berry compote, pepper and sweet meats the bouquet is fresh, youthful, varietal and enticing. On the palate - flavours of dark berries and toasty oak, pepper and baking spices, currants, some ageing meats and earthy tones of dry rock. Medium tannins and plenty of acidity add texture and bite with the core of fruit adding weight, length and finish. A polished expression, ready to enjoy."

The Wine Writer, 5 stars
"The delicious aromas of sweet blackberries, ripe red plum, and smoky oak with hints of vanilla and violets are intoxicating. The palate is lighter and fresher than the nose indicates it will be. Richly fruited with flavours of cranberry, red plum, redcurrant, juicy blackberries, and oaky spices with barely there tannins."-The Wine Writer, 5 stars

When you talk Hawkes Bay wines is hard to go past Elephant Hill. When you talk Syrah its also hard to go past Elephant Hill. Great price on this beauty!

Syrah is the key variety at Elephant Hill. Hand harvesting, small batch fermentation and ageing in French oak barriques ensure a wine of great balance and finesse. The 2018 Syrah is made from grapes off our Gimblett, Te Awanga and Bridge Pa Triangle Vineyards. All the grapes were gently de-stemmed, pressed and aged for 18 months in 25% new French oak."

Elephant Hill (Hawke’s Bay) 2019 Chardonnay

5 stars & 18.5 Points - Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
"Bright, even, pale yellow with a slightly green hue. The nose is elegantly full and expressive, immediately filling the glass with toasted hazelnut, buttery popcorn underlying stone fruit, citrus, barrel flint and spice. Full-bodied, pure fruit aromas of peach, nectarine with a citrus base, enriched by barrel spice, hazelnut and buttery popcorn. The acidity is sherbety and seamless, carrying barrel spice, flint throughout the palate. Noticeable silky phenolics contribute to texture, along with a buttery flow. Flavours are harmonious and generous; combining the vibrant acidity shows vitality and ageing potential. Match with tiger prawns and poultry over the next 7+ years" Candice Chow

Established in 2003, Elephant Hill is located within a stone’s throw of the Pacific Ocean on the idyllic Te Awanga coast of Hawke’s Bay on New Zealand’s North Island. The winemaking at Elephant Hill is driven by tradition while not losing sight of what innovation can bring to the blend. "Our aim is to make wines that are balanced, elegant and a true expression of the vineyards they come from."

Hand harvested fruit was gently whole bunch pressed and the resulting juice was briefly settled before being transferred to French oak barrels (largely seasoned) and tank for natural and inoculated fermentation. Following this, some batches went through malolactic fermentation to balance out the natural acidity. Maturation on fine lees for 13 months with regular stirring has added texture, complexity and interest to the core of fruit purity this wine shows.

Great value red blend from Hawkes Bay experts, Elephant Hill. A unique blend of Merlot, Syrah, Tempranillo & Malbec. The Phantom Rouge is medium-bodied with focussed dark-red fruit, along with a fine structure and gently toasty oak. Structured but succulent, approachable and down right tasty!
