Reviews and Ratings

From Hawke's Bay, Elephant Hill, the wine grapes for Le Phant 2016 are grown in the family-owned, certified sustainable vineyards of Gimblett, Te Awanga and Triangle. Owners are Reydan and Roger Weiss. Look for black currant, dark plum, vanilla and cedar spices flavours juicy and smooth on the palate. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
