In serious danger of becoming a permanent classic, this consistent stunner from Elephant Hill must be one of the world's best estate Syrahs. Last year: Gold Air NZ, Gold NZIWS, Gold China WSA. A last year in the run of good vintages played into their hands, producing huge depth of black fruit with delicate spice and florals on a very long, rich but dry, harmonious and seamless palate. This is beautiful stuff at a bargain price -- drink or lay down.

Overview

Grape

Syrah

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

94/100 Sam Kim (2015 vintage)

"Wonderfully fruited and inviting, the bouquet shows blackberry, dark plum, violet, black pepper and cedar characters, leading to a concentrated palate that is plump and fleshy. The wine offers terrific fruit intensity and vibrancy, beautifully supported by silky texture and fine tannins. Youthful and immediately appealing. At its best: now to 2022. $36.00. www.elephanthill.co.nz. Aug 2018."
