    Elephant Hill only release their sleek looking Reserve range when the quality hits the mark. When they say that, they mean it. These guys set the bar pretty high when it comes to quality. That might be something to do with their German owners, Roger and Reydan Weiss, that spare no expense in running this state of the art winery located on the stunning Te Awanga coastline, and boasts one of the finest winery restaurants in NZ! Elephant Hill Reserve Merlot Malbec Cabernet Sauvignon

    It’s also probably why we this is only the third Elephant Hill Reserve Bordeaux blend red since 2009! The 2015 vintage was the third belter in a row in Hawke’s Bay so it was time to get to work.
