Description

A blend of 4 grapes from 3 vineyards - Merlot, Syrah, Tempranillo and Malbec from Te Awanga, Gimblett Gravels, and the Bridge Pa Triangle. From the top vintage of 2020 and as always, Elephant Hill produces spectacular wines across their whole portfolio. Le Phant Rouge 2020 highlights their viticulture and winemaking prowess, the fruit is obviously pristine and plush if this superb release is anything to go by. Matured for 12 months in French Oak, and where this 2020 is a bit of a blockbuster, with plenty of weight, body, and oomph, one that will age 6-8 years+

Smells

Plenty of juicy blackberries and Black Doris plum, with hints of smoke, spice, a peppery lift and minerality.

Tastes

Loads of plummy fruit, with opulent, rounded mouthfeel, a peppery note showing the influence of Syrah on the juicy Merlot, with the Malbec fleshing out the structure, complemented by the salivating tannin/acid balance. It's lots of wine for the money to enjoy between now and 2028 with a juicy steak or Thai beef salad.
