Medium to deep ruby-purple coloured, the 2014 Pinot Noir has quite a herbal nose with notes of dried Provence herbs and stems over a black fruit and cassis core plus a waft of cedar. Plenty of black berry flavours fill the palate with a not unpleasant herbal streak and chewy tannins, finishing long.

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.
