Elephant Hill STONE Syrah 2017

Elephant Hill STONE Syrah 2017

  • Syrah
  • New Zealand, 750ml

A multi-award winning fine Shiraz from Elephant Hill. "It’s a very sleek, polished wine showing ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit, with some hints of liquorice, tar and cedar. There’s a bit of black pepper, but the smooth, ripe fruit, coupled with some vanilla sweetness from the oak, leads the flavour profile." Jamie Goode

Established in 2003, Elephant Hill is located within a stone’s throw of the Pacific Ocean on the idyllic Te Awanga coast of Hawke’s Bay on New Zealand’s North Island.

This ‘Stone’ wine is an expression of Syrah from Elephant Hill's vineyard situated at the heart of Gimblett Gravels Wine Growing District. It is a wine grown from ‘young soil with an old soul’.

Elephant Hill is a family owned boutique producer of premium Hawke’s Bay wine. The winery is situated at Te Awanga on a 25 hectare costal site enjoying a temperate climate and an extended growing season due to its proximity to the ocean. Additional vineyards at Roy’s Hill and the Gimblett Gravels provide further fruit options from these warmer sites. With an ethos of zero compromise, the wines from Elephant Hill display the character produced from carefully tended vines, nurtured to bottle by Steve Skinner’s exceptional winemaking.
