Elephant Hill Syrah 2017 750ml

Commercial description

Climatically, a cooler, slower and late vintage compared to the last three vintages. However, this allowed our Syrah grapes to experience a long and gentle ripening
period on the vine. With multiple picks over a three-week period in April, the result is a wine that exhibits the purity of fruit and elegance typical for Elephant Hill.

This is made from grapes off our Gimblett, Te Awanga and Triangle Vineyards. Whilst keeping 5% as whole clusters the remainder of the grapes were gently de-stemmed, pressed and aged for 22 months in French oak, 25% new. Thereafter the wine was kept on lees for another 6 months, then bottled in February.

It has aromas of boysenberry, pepper, subtle liquorice and floral notes with smooth tannins. The wine is luscious and elegant, a true Elephant Hill Syrah.
