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. The powerhouse team have really pulled off something special here. Ripe, juicy, and a rich full palate, your tastebuds will be happy. Good depth but a soft touch to the overall finish. Match with your next roast lamb.
Sam Kim writes "Gorgeously fruited and perfumed with Black Doris plum, spiced cherry, dark olive and smoked game nuances, it's succulent and supple in the mouth delivering excellent fruit purity and silky flow. Finely textured and lingering with a delightfully elegant finish."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "An exuberant, fresh and pure fruited bouquet with scents of dark cherry and raspberry, a mix of wood spice, strone and mineral qualities, violets and a whisper of peppery spice. Plush, fresh, textued new and delicious. The varietal signatures in the bouquet are delivered seamlessly to the palate. An abundance of fine polished tannins, a back bone of acidity and lengthy finish. An excellent wine for sipping on its own or with food."
