2015 was a very good vintage for Chardonnay with good fruit set and a settled dry summer. It is a balanced, well-structured Chardonnay showing great fruit concentration with lovely texture and length. A variety and wine that is going from strength to strength from this site and sub-region.
Established in 2003, Elephant Hill is located within a stone’s throw of the Pacific Ocean on the idyllic Te Awanga coast of Hawke’s Bay on New Zealand’s North Island. The winemaking at Elephant Hill is driven by tradition while not losing sight of what innovation can bring to the blend. Their aim is to make wines that are balanced and elegant and a true expression of the vineyards they come from.
