Description

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 winemaking with an innovative approach and contemporary style to produce exceptional wines to savour and enjoy. With the majestic elephant as the company's namesake, Elephant Hill has over 61 hectares of vineyards in Te Awanga, Gimblett Gravels and Bridge Pa. Under the supervision of winemaker Steve Skinner they produce award-winning wines; classical, aromatic whites and world-class reds.

The Elephant Hill vineyards enjoy the spoils of a temperate, dry climate and an extended growing season. Gimblett Gravels and Bridge Pa vineyards have a slightly warmer climate than the coastal sites, perfect for the ripening of Syrah grapes. Cooled by afternoon Pacific Ocean sea breezes, the single vineyard on the Te Awanga coast grows grapes with lively acidity, excellent maturation and ripeness. This moderated climate results in intense flavour development ensuring distinct wines are produced representing the terroir of Te Awanga.

Handpicked fruit of outstanding quality and optimal flavour ripeness was whole-bunch pressed to 228L Burgundian oak, 25% new. No cultured yeast was added; rather an uninoculated fermentation using the yeast strains indigenous to our vineyard was allowed. Following the alcoholic fermentation the wine remained in barrel, on lees, for 11 months. 
 
Fantastic texture, complexity and length with wonderful ripe citrus fruit characters and subtle hazelnuts. A wine that is balanced and focused and a great reflection of our Te Awanga Vineyard.
