Elephant Hill 2017 Syrah Rosé and 2016 Chardonnay

18-Oct-2017
Elephant Hill was established by the Weiss family in 2003, and in the short time to now, it has become one of the most exciting and respected Hawke’s Bay wineries. With the coastal home Te Awanga vineyard supported by warmer inland vineyards in the Red Metals and Gimblett Gravels, the range of wines is quite complete, with quality shining through in all varieties. Most would agree that Chardonnay is the flagship white, and now, Syrah is the favoured red. Winemaker Steve Skinner gives considerable thought to the making of wines from these varieties. Here, I review the 2017 Syrah Rosé, the first Elephant Hill rosé made from this variety, and the 2016 Chardonnay. www.elephanthill.co.nz
