"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."
