About this product +

Producer >

Elephant Hill is a stunning and innovative winery estate located on the idyllic Te Awanga coast in Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. Established in 2003 by a Reydan and Roger Weiss who moved to Te Awanga from Germany, their son Andreas and his family have now taken over the reins and continued in the pursuit of quality in this renowned part of New Zealand. With plots in three of the most renowned sub regions of Hawkes Bay - Te Awanga Costal, Gimblett and the Bridge Pa Triangle region there is a focus on soils and their expression in the glass. Though Harriet originally sought out the Syrah from this estate. The Chardonnays stole the show.
