"Climatically 2013 was an exceptional vintage and allowed us to grow and ripen grapes to optimum quality. The 2013 Reserve Syrah is made with Syrah from our Gimblett Vineyard (50%); Te Awanga Vineyard (30%) and Triangle Vineyard (20%) with 1% Viognier co-fermented into the blend." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
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.
