This vintage has now sold out
The 2013 vintage has been hailed as one of Hawke’s Bay’s truly exceptional vintages giving us the quality of grapes good enough to make one of our Icon wines, the Hieronymus. 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 Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) is all from the Elephant Hill Gimblett Gravels Vineyard. The Malbec and Merlot (20% each) are from the Elephant Hill Triangle Vineyard.

The Icons are not made every year and by their very nature will always be made in small volumes from Elephant Hill’s meticulously tendered estate vineyards.
The wines are purposely released after a good amount of time ageing in bottle.
