Elephant Hill RESERVE Chardonnay 2017

94 POINTS | Cameron Douglas, MS
18.5/20 | Candice Chow for Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
FIVE STARS | Michael Cooper
FIVE STARS 95/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

This is a reserve wine through and through. Its a stunning rendition of Hawke's Bay Chardonnay from the Elephant Hill team that is only released when the conditions are absolutely perfect. It's powerful but refined and sophisticated. Stunning now but this wine will blossom with a few years in the cellar. Tuck a 6 pack away and watch the magic unfold.

Tasting Notes

Cameron Douglas writes "Sophisticated bouquet with aromas of ripe yellow peach and brazil-nut, new wood aromas and red apple, citrus and dry stone mineral. On the palate - full-bodied, fruity, woody and, nutty with flavours that reflect the bouquet. Cashew and creamy, fine wood tannins, medium+ (ish) acidity and and lengthy varietally intense finish. Well made, drink now and through 2025."

Sam Kim writes "Gorgeously complex and inviting, the wine shows ripe peach, fig, lemon peel and vanillin oak characters on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that is wonderfully expansive and creamy. It is opulent and sophisticated with an impressively long refined finish."

Candice Chow writes "A vivid presence of citrus fruit of lemon, grapefruit and its pith, along with white peach, raw fennel took centre stage, unfolding hazelnut, cream and toasty oak element. The creamy mouthfeel is smooth flowing, provides body weight and balance to the electric acid drive. The acidity has good tension and energy flow, youthful and appealing, carries a chalky phenolic and citrus flavours to linearity."
