Elephant Hill are well and truly establishing themselves as one of the star wineries in the Hawkes Bay gaining recognition and accolades for many of their wines. The Elephant Hill Chardonnay 2019 is outstanding, showing fantastic presence, length, balance and texture. It has a fruit purity at its core but it is very much a multi layers Chardonnay with well judged savoury elements.


Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"Chardonnay is our flagship white variety at Elephant Hill. Both our Te Awanga and Bridge Pa vineyards have the ideal sub-climates to grow this variety. This is an elegant and concentrated Chardonnay that combines vibrant citrus and stone-fruit characters with wonderful texture."


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, December 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"A stylish offering, the wine shows ripe peach, lemon pith, vanilla and roasted cashew characters on the nose with a hint of oatmeal complexity. The palate is concentrated and richly textured, delivering beautifully layered mouthfeel together with well-pitched acidity, leading to a persistent expansive finish. At its best: now to 2026."


Rated Excellent & 94/100 Cameron Douglas MS, December 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"There’s no mistaking the allure of barrel spice and ripe yellow stone fruit aromas reflected in the bouquet. There’s also scents of gun flint and mineral, baked apple and apricot stone, a sweet new barrel note and fine lees complexity adds complexity and breadth. Nearing full-bodied with a creamy silky texture as the wine touches the palate, flavours of apple and peach, grapefruit and sea spray then a stony mineral and toasty barrel quality. Lovely weight and texture, balance and length. A delicious wine that Chardonnay fans will enjoy (a lot!). Best drinking from day of purchase and through 2027"


5 Stars & 18.5+/20 (94) Candice Chow for Raymond Chan Reviews, November 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Bright, even, pale yellow with a slightly green hue. The nose is elegantly full and expressive, immediately filled the glass with toasted hazelnut, buttery popcorn underlying stonefruit, citrus, barrel flint and spice. Full-bodied, pure fruit aromas of peach, nectarine with a citrus base, enriched by barrel spice, hazelnut and buttery popcorn. The acidity is sherbety and seamless, carrying barrel spice, flint throughout the palate. Noticeable silky phenolics contribute to texture, along with a buttery flow. Flavours are harmonious and generous; combining the vibrant acidity shows vitality and ageing potential. Match with tiger prawns and poultry over the next 7+ years. Fruit from Te Awanga (85%) and Bridge Pa (15%), fermented in mostly older French oak with a portion in tank, 13 months on lees with regular stirring, 13% alc."


4 Stars Michael Cooper (2019 Vintage)
"The 2019 vintage is a 'lightly oaked' style, estate-grown at Te Awanga (85 per cent) and in the Bridge Pa Triangle (15 per cent). Lees-aged for over a year, it was matured in a mix of French oak casks and tanks. Bright, light lemon/green, it is full-bodied, with generous, peachy, slightly toasty flavours, fresh acidity and good complexity. Drink now or cellar."

  • Relatively new to wine and liquor, but I have found the experience of trying new wines and liquor enjoying with the help from the staff at Vino Fino. Very friendly and tolerant of my basic questions!

    Amazing customer service. Vino Fino arranged a gift wrapped, hand delivered, chilled bottle of champagne for the morning of my best friends wedding, as I was stuck in the UK with COVID. A beautiful gift. It was like nothing was too much trouble for them. I was even able to dictate a small message. Thank you for your excellent service!

  • Great range of wines.You will find some not so common grape varieties are available here. They appear to be competitively priced. Service was excellent. The shop is split over three levels. Not sure how you'd cope if you are mobility impaired.

Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend

    Not only do they sell delicious wine at great prices, but the owners of the store couldn't be more lovely. We had to cancel our wedding twice due to covid-19 and they have been amazing in helping us return and sell our alcohol. They have gone above and beyond. Highly recommend.
