Elephant Hill Reserve Hawke’s Bay Syrah


Still very youthful, the 2018 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown and hand-picked in the Gimblett Gravels (48 per cent), the Bridge Pa Triangle (40 per cent) and at Te Awanga (12 per cent), and matured for two years in French oak casks (35 per cent new). Full-coloured, it is a powerful red with strong blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, slightly earthy notes adding complexity, fresh acidity and ripe, supple tannins. Well worth cellaring, it should break into full stride from 2023 onwards.
