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.

Le Phant Blanc is a blend of Pinot Gris, Viognier and Gewurztraminer. The grapes were harvested over 6 hand-picks, whole-bunch pressed and fermented separately. A proportion of the Viognier and Gewurztraminer were barrel fermented and the rest in stainless steel, temperature-controlled tanks.
 
This blend of aromatic white varieties brings together subtle spicy characters, floral notes and a touch of off-dry sweetness with beautiful balance and texture.
