Overview

Grape

Chardonnay

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 winemaking 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

94/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim

"Beautifully fruited and elegantly expressed, the bouquet shows ripe stone fruit, rockmelon, nougat and cedar characters. The palate delivers excellent weight and generous mouthfeel, wonderfully supported by creamy texture and bright acidity, leading to a lengthy refined finish. $34.00. www.elephanthill.co.nz. Feb 2019." Drink 2019 - 2022

4.5 Stars Winestate Magazine

This tightly structured, vigorous young wine was estate-grown at Te Awanga (90%) and in the Bridge Pa Triangle (10%), and fermented and matured for a year in French oak casks (25% new). It has a fragrant, complex bouquet, leading into a full-bodied wine with good intensity of fresh grapefruit and peach flavours, integrated toasty oak, and a crisp, long finish.
