Elephant Hill Le Phant Rouge 2019


Another cracking 2019 Hawke's Bay red from the Elephant in the room.  

We were surprised (for the right reasons), that we could offer you this new vintage release at the old promo price.  This is very attractive buying for under $20. Open a bottle of this, sit back and sniff in and taste up. Thank you again 2019.

"I was very excited to taste this new release as I LOVED the last one, and I was not disappointed. Concentrated, deep ruby in colour with concentrated, deep aromas to match. Beautiful ripe dark and red plum, boysenberry, red currant, and oak spices are on the nose and on the palate, with fine dusty tannins and a deliciously long finish. Buy it, and drink it, you can thank me later." 5 Stars, The Wine Writer 

"An immediately enticing core of dark red fruit aromas - Doris plums and blackberry,  some raspberry and milk chocolate then a layer of fine stony soil suggestions. On the palate - fruity, vibrant, salivating and dry. Flavours mirror the bouquet with fine tannins and youthful acid line. A lovely velvety texture coats the palate layering a great mouthfeel and touch of finesse and finishing with flavours of red berries, spice and chocolate. Well made and ready to drink upon day of purchase, I recommend you imbibe with food alongside. Best drinking from 2021 through 2023+" 92 Points Premium - Cameron Douglas
