Description

Elephant Hill have recently launched to the market their Single Vineyard series, these wines perfectly reflect the local terrior of either Te Awanga, Bridge Pa or the Gimblett Gavels. The 'Stone' Syrah off the Gimblett Gravels all the fruit was hand picked and hand-sorted before fermentation in vessels (ranging from 1 to 5 tonnes) which included 10% whole bunches. The ferments were hand plunged and the wine then aged for 26 months in 100% French Oak (30% new) before release at 3 years of age.

Smells

Deep dark and brooding, showing lush black berry fruit, cassis and violets, just a hint of oak, showing just how concentrated the fruit is - eating up the 30% new oak.

Tastes

Big and bold with impressive length and structure, more tannic and tightly bound than the Bridge Pa edition. 10+ years of age will start to open up the blackberry, liquorice and Chinese five spice notes. Best enjoyed after 2+ hours in a big ships decanter and will really come into its own with 10-15+ years of age.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
