Elephant Hill Syrah, Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand 2013
After visiting the area in 2001, Reydan and Roger Weiss fell in love and went on to build this 61-hectare property located over three different areas, Te Awanga, Gimblett Gravels and Bridge Pa. Concentrated nose developing toward black berry, black pepper and spices. An elegant and textured palate balanced by the grainy tannins and layers of spice and black fruits with an aromatic lift.
