Elephant Hill Le Phant Rouge 2020

FIVE STARS 94/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
FIVE STARS 18.5/20 | Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews

93 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS

This enticing blend of Hawke's Bay Merlot, Syrah and Malbec is another stellar effort from winemaker Steve Skinner and the 2020 is an immediately attractive wine with upfront juiciness and glossy, dark fruit characters that reveal layers of spice and complexity as the wine opens in the glass. In our view it's a significant step up from the previous vintages, showing a fuller and more concentrated palate with more grip and creamy acidity on the finish. 

This lovely wine is already in superb form but will blossom over the coming 6 - 8 years should you chose to lay some down.

Tasting Notes

Vinted from a blend of 41% Merlot, 24% Syrah, 18% Tempranillo, 12% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc.

The winery writes "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."

Sam Kim writes "Gorgeously ripe and complex, showing blackcurrant, dark plum, violet, olive and subtle cedar characters on the nose. The concentrated palate is both refined and powerful, delivering excellent depth and richness backed by plenty of fine tannins, finishing persistent and satisfying."

Cameron Douglas MS writes "This red belnd made with merlot, syrah, tempranillo and malbec - offers aromas of boysenberry and plum, mixed berry compote, violet and a whisper of dark chocolate. Oak, toasty aromas and baking spices add depth and on the palate a velvet mouthfel. PLenty of acidity to contrast a core of fruit flavours that mirror the bouquet. Balanced, well made and ready to drink from day of purchase and through 2026."
