Elephant Hill only make this Reserve Syrah in when the vintage allows. 

“The best Vintage on record?” A big claim and one we hear perhaps very often in some parts of the industry, but for the vineyards at Elephant Hill the 2018 Vintage has produced the
best of all possible outcomes. Not only we have met our yield target (98.5%), but more importantly, we have produced the flavour profiles that are required to produce superior Reserve
and Icon quality wines."

Concentrated with blackberry, plums, pepper and spice. It finishes long and has silky tannins. It is a wine that will keep improving and can be enjoyed with proper cellaring for up to a decade from vintage.

24 months in 35% new French oak with an additional 4 months in tank on lees. Unfined and filtered, all the good stuff left in!

Gift or enjoy!
