Elephant Hill Hawke’s Bay Merlot Malbec 2015

25-Aug-2017
Elephant Hill is best known as a Te Awanga-based producer of top-class Hawke’s Bay wine. The ‘Home’ vineyards, winery, cellar door and excellent restaurant are situated of Clifton Road next to the sea. However, Elephant Hill also has warmer-sited inland vineyards in the Gimblett Gravels and the Bridge Pa Triangle, which gives winemaker Steve Skinner many options for blending, as well as single vineyard expressions. The inland vineyards are particularly suited to the growing of the Bordeaux red varieties. Here, I review the 2015 Merlot/Malbec blend which employs fruit, primarily from the company’s Gimblett Gravel site, with some Triangle vineyard fruit included. www.elephanthill.co.nz
