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 (2020 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 & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2022 (2020 Vintage)
"​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. At its best: now to 2030."


Rated Excellent & 93/100 Cameron Douglas MS, April 2022 (2020 Vintage)
"This red blend 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 mouthfeel. 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."


Reviews for the 2019 vintage below…


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."

    5 star review  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!

  • 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.

  • 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.
