ELEPHANT HILL SYRAH ROSÉ 2017 is available to buy in increments of 1
A new addition to the Elephant Hill range brought about because their Rose is usually made from Tempranillo and in 2017 the volume of Tempranillo produced was very small so this Syrah Rosé was added to make up the shortfall. A pale pink colour, this is light and fresh to taste. Quince and peach skin fruit flavours. Dry and refreshing with some weight from lees stirring. 
Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Syrah is one of the most outstanding varieties in Hawke's Bay and we have for the first time released a Syrah Rose. The wine is dry and crisp yet very fruit-forward. It can be easily enjoyed on its own or pair with lighter dishes."
5 Stars & 18.5-/20 Raymond Chan, October 2017 (2017 Vintage)
"Bright salmon-pink colour with some depth, lighter on the rim with slight purple hues. The nose is softly fresh and voluminous with good depth of watermelon, quince and cranberries with red florals, and a fine core of mouthwatering mineral notes. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has a deep heart of watermelon, quince and cranberry fruit along with lifted red florals. The fruit is rich and mouthfilling and enlivened by bright, crisp, thirst-quenching acidity. The wine flows with some underlying power along a very fine-textured line, leading to an aromatic, lingering finish of red fruits and florals. This is a rich, mouthfilling dry rosé with flavours of watermelon, quince and cranberries, on a well-driven, crisp, mouthwatering palate of substance. Match with antipasto and tapas over the next 2 years. A blend of 97% Syrah and 3% Tempranillo, the fruit 42% Gimblett, 40% Bridge Pa and18% Te Awanga, WBP and cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 12.5% alc. and 3.5 g/L RS."
