Elephant Hill is all about quality. From their award winning restaurant (now closed), winery building and of course to their wines. We just love the Le Phant Rouge because it's just so deliciously drinkable with gorgeous fruit and a lovely spice element coming through from the Syrah. All up it's a juicy, round and mouthfilling blend that shows Hawkes Bay red at its accessible best.


Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"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."


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"​A splendid merlot-dominant blend with malbec and syrah in good supporting role, it’s beautifully lifted on the nose with Black Doris plum, blueberry, floral and elegant oak notes, leading to a succulent palate that’s supple and flavoursome with a lovely silky flow. Well structured too, making it wonderfully appealing. At its best: now to 2032."


5 Stars & 18.5+/20 (94) Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Reviews, August 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Deep, ruby-red, lighter edged. This has an elegant, cheery bouquet, aromas of succulent blackcurrants, plums entwined with leather, cedar and spices with depth and intensity. Medium-full bodied, the palate is mouth-filling, well-packed nuances of blackcurrants, plums interweave cedar, leather, unfolding nutmeg and liquorice. The flavours are delicate with intensity, enlivens by fresh, lacy acidity; fine-grained tannin extraction supports a fine structure and velvety mouthfeel. This is a consistent overachiever with succulent fruit, fine structure and depth. Match with beef wellington and lamb racks over the next 6-8 years. Fruit sourced from Bridge Pa Triangle 84%, Gimblett Gravels 10% and Te Awanga 6%, a blend of Merlot 50%, Malbec 25%, Syrah 23% and Cabernet Sauvignon 2%. Fermented to 13.5% alc, partially aged in French oak."


92/100 Cameron Douglas MS, August 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"An immediately enticing core of dark red fruit aromas – Doris plums and blackberry, some raspberry and milk chocolate then a layer of fine stony soil suggestions. On the palate – fruity, vibrant, salivating and dry. Flavours mirror the bouquet with fine tannins and youthful acid line. A lovely velvety texture coats the palate layering a great mouthfeel and touch of finesse and finishing with flavours of red berries, spice and chocolate. Well made and ready to drink upon day of purchase, I recommend you imbibe with food alongside. Best drinking from 2021 through 2023+"

    5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

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

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
