    From one of the real rising stars in Hawke’s Bay – Elephant Hill are fast proving it’s not just their winery that’s flash as, the wines ain’t bad either!

    Using fruit sourced from a spectacular single vineyard site (Te Awanga) right on the Hawke’s Bay coastline, using entirely hand picked fruit, whole bunch pressed and given 11 months in oak. All from a top 2014 vintage that’s followed in the footsteps of a pretty awesome 2013 vintage. In their own words the Elephant crew call this is a Chardy with “wonderful fruit purity and elegance“.

    Drink it now or chuck it in your cellar and let it develop over the next five years. If you’re in the Bay swing by this place (not long ago voted NZ’s top winery restaurant in Cuisine magazine) and grab a feed paired with these world class wines – they highly recommend a glass of this Chardy with chicken ravioli, chestnut puree, butternut, truffle and sage. Divine!
