ELEPHANT HILL TEMPRANILLO EARTH 15

ELEPHANT HILL TEMPRANILLO EARTH 15

The ‘Earth, Sea and Stone’ wines are designed to reveal the
purest characters of our three sub-region vineyards as well as
showing individual varietal expression.

Earth is elegant and passionate. Time has done the hard work of
softening the soil’s rough edges, allowing our Earth to display
passionate, fruitful and lively characters.The history of the Bridge Pa
Triangle extends over more than 2,000 hectares on the western side of the
Heretaunga plains and includes the largest concentration of vineyards in
Hawke’s Bay. Located on old terraces of the Ngaruroro River, which up
until 10,000 years ago flowed out to sea between Maraekakaho and Roys
Hill. Locally referred to as “Red Metal” soil, a thin layer of silt loam over
river deposited gravels with a distinct reddish hue


All the grapes were hand-sorted. Small ferments ranging from 1 to 5
tonnes combining traditional open top oak cuves and stainless open
top fermenters included 25% whole bunches. The ferments were hand
plunged and the wine was then aged for 26 months in 3 year old oak.

The early stages of vintage were dry and warm, however the wet
weather arrived in the second week of March and cooler conditions
predominated, causing ripening to slow down significantly. Our
Tempranillo vines benefited from the slower ripening season
conditions and led to the first production of our ‘Earth’ Tempranillo
wine in late March.
