Elephant Hill Le Phant Rouge 2021


One of the best priced HB reds in the market and now it has a new vintage attached. The last of the magnificent trilogy of HB vintages.

"A medium-bodied Merlot dominant blend displaying blackberry, cassis and plum characters with a succulent texture and great finish. It can be enjoyed for a further 6 to 8 years from vintage." Winery

"Wonderfully fruited and elegantly complex, the bouquet shows blackcurrant, sweet cherry, cedar, thyme and warm spice aromas, leading to a gorgeously flavoursome palate offering succulent fruit intensity together with silky texture and fine-grained tannins. Supple and lingering with a delectable finish. A blend of merlot, syrah, tempranillo, malbec, cabernet sauvignon & cabernet franc. At its best: now to 2030." 5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

"Drinking well in its youth, the 2021 vintage is a full-coloured blend of six grape varieties – Merlot (40 per cent), Syrah (36 per cent), Tempranillo (14 per cent), Malbec (8 per cent), Cabernet Sauvignon (1 per cent) and Cabernet Franc (1 per cent). Grown in the Bridge Pa Triangle (53 per cent), the Gimblett Gravels (34 per cent) and at Te Awanga (13 per cent), it was 'lightly oaked for 12 months.' Mouthfilling, vibrantly fruity and supple, it is a generous, very harmonious red, with strong, plummy, spicy flavours, and savoury notes adding complexity. Best drinking 2025+." 4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper, April 2023

Give it a go before its goes...  e 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 $21. Open a bottle of this, sit back and sniff in and taste up.
