FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Elephant Hill has a glowing reputation for producing superb, award winning wines and this release is exactly that. From a single vineyard in Bendigo, Central Otago, this wine is jam-packed with red berry, dark plum fruits and subtle florals intwined. Bright acidity and fine tannins make it a perfect match for food. Think hearty beef casserole. Elegant, balanced and a true expression of Pinot Noir.
The winery writes "The wine displays layers of ripe red berry, dark fruit and subtle floral notes alongside vibrant acidity and fined-grained tanins. It is a Pinot Noir which matches well with a hearty beef casserole."
Sam Kim writes "Elegant and pristine, the wine shows ripe cherry, clove, thyme and toasted almond characters on the nose. The finely expressed palate offers juicy fruit intensity backed by fleshy texture and polished tannins. Poised and harmonious with a lengthy silky finish."
