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.

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

91/100 Bob Campbell

"Moderately dense, supple syrah with chocolate/mocha, dark berry, wood-smoke, liquorice and nutty oak flavours. A smooth-textured and deliciously approachable wine."

93/100, 5 Stars Wine Orbit

Sweetly fruited and delightfully complex, the fragrant bouquet shows Black Doris plum, spiced cherry, floral and hazelnut characters with nuances of game and pepper spice. It's wonderfully weighted and flavoursome on the palate, delivering lovely fruit purity and vibrancy together with silky mouthfeel and supple tannins, finishing long and satisfying. At its best: now to 2027
