Tasting notes

Purposely held back and released after a year in bottle and two and half years after vintage these wines are the pinnacle of Elephant Hill’s winemaking and viticulture.
The wine is made with Syrah from our Gimblett Gravels and Te Awanga vineyards with 1% Viognier co-fermented into the blend.

The Icons are the pinnacle of Elephant Hill’s winemaking philosophy. They are fine and rare wines with great complexity and depth.
