“The Elephant Hill Reserve Syrah 2008 is created from the skillful artistry of Steve Skinner, winemaker at Elephant Hill in Te Awanga, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand. A superb complex nestled in the Estate’s vineyards and overlooking the Pacific Ocean, featuring the spectacular view of the iconic Cape Kidnappers, Elephant Hill is truly and wonderful place to visit, whether you intend purely on enjoying their Cellar Door experience, or include a meal at the winery restaurant.
Back in Central Otago, Lady Parker reviews this 2008 Reserve Syrah kindly sent by the Elephant Hill team to taste in front of the crackling fire on a cool Autumn evening…. it’s dark fruit complexity, subtle anise spice, a touch of tobacco and perfumed violet aromas are a perfect match for such a setting.
