2017 Elephant Hill Reserve Hawkes Bay Chardonnay

95 Points Sam Kim
In stock
Reserve Chardonnay with huge sophistication and appeal. At once generous and refined, this is tightly packed with nutty and toasty citrus and stonefruit richness. With the pure presence of a reserve wine, this seriously complex food Chardonnay will decant now or cellar a few years.

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

95/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim

"Gorgeously complex and inviting, the wine shows ripe peach, fig, lemon peel and vanillin oak characters on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that is wonderfully expansive and creamy. It is opulent and sophisticated with an impressively long refined finish. At its best: now to 2023. $54.00. www.elephanthill.co.nz. Nov 2019." Drink 2019 - 2023

94/100 Cameron Douglas MS

"Sophisticated bouquet with aromas of ripe yellow peach and brazil-nut, new wood aromas and red apple, citrus and dry stone mineral. On the palate - full-bodied, fruity, woody and, nutty with flavours that reflect the bouquet. Cashew and creamy, fine wood tannins, medium+ (ish) acidity and and lengthy varietally intense finish. Well made, drink now and through 2025." Drink 2020 - 2025
