A heavy one-off discount on this serious Bordeaux blend. The Hieronymus is a super-premium offering from Hawkes Bay experts Elephant Hill. (Don't be confused, 'Hieronymus' was once a different wine in their range, but the name now applies to their top-level red blend.) Hugely ripe but also focused and restrained, this is the cream of the crop and has a delicious future in cellar or decanter. Collect now at this heavy discount!

Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec

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

96/100 and "Outstanding" from Cameron Douglas MS

""It’s immediately engaging, complex, a core of fruit and no mistaking the oak, but engages the senses in a seductive way. On the palate - flavours of blackberry and sweet olive, crushed dry stones and pencil lead, iron & hot steel, dark plums and dark chocolate. Bold, firm & ripe tannins with plenty of acidity provides a great foundation, toasty new French barrel flavours & dark spices. A truly enjoyable wine from aroma to palate - you will not be disappointed with this purchase. Decant for service with best drinking from 2023 through 2030+." Drink 2023 - 2030+

96/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim

"This magnificent Bordeaux blend shows pristine fruit aromas of cassis and Black Doris plum together with cedar, tobacco and olive nuances on the nose. The palate delivers outstanding concentration and intensity, wonderfully complemented by fine texture and chalky tannins, providing both structure and exquisite refinement. At its best: 2024 to 2037. $120.00. www.elephanthill.co.nz. June 2020." Drink 2024 - 2037
