2012 Elephant Hill Rania

Elephant Hill


The late autumn weather of the 2009 vintage worked very well for the production of our first Noble or botrytis sweet wine. Harvested over three separate hand picks from our coastal Te Awanga Vineyard the grapes were whole-bunch pressed and fermented over a three year period in French oak barriques.

A slightly lighter version of Rain than the 2011 and 2012 vintages. Although still showing the botrytis characters of Molasses and treacle, the soft acidity holds well in the palate and brings in complexity and soft citrus characters throughout.
