One of the best in the country, if not the world, this estate offering from Elephant Hill is consistently superb. We don't know how they do it – but whatever they do, it works. Elegantly bright and floral/mineral on the nose, gentle stone fruit leads you through a fresh but oily palate of subtle power, texture, length and nuance. This is a must for any lover of elegant but generous aromatic whites. Volumes are small so jump on this!

Overview

Grape

Viognier

Its Origins

Reydan and Roger Weiss first fell in love with the beauty of Te Awanga when visiting from Germany in 2001. Together they envisaged owning a state-of-the-art winery, merging the traditional values of wine making with an innovative approach and contemporary style to produce exceptional wines to savour and enjoy. With the majestic elephant as their namesake and nestled against a backdrop of rolling hillsides, Elephant Hill spans over 25 hectares of vineyards producing classical, aromatics whites and world-class reds, helmed by winemaker Steve Skinner.

What The Critics Say

93/100 Sam Kim (2015 vintage)

"One of the most consistently delectable viognier from the Bay, this is wonderfully expressive and fragrant on the nose showing apricot, mango, floral and orange peel characters. The palate is concentrated and beautifully weighted, and delivers rich texture and excellent fruit intensity, brilliantly structured by bright acidity. It is youthful and powerful, and immediately appealing. At its best: now to 2019. $29.00. www.elephanthill.co.nz. March 2016."

92/100 Bob Campbell MW (2015 vintage)

"Appealing, silken-textured viognier with orange bud, white rose and apricot flavours with a hint of clove spice. A charming wine with good concentration and weight 29/3/2016"
