Description

The Elephant Hill winemaking facility is undeniably impressive, the project of German businessman Roger Weiss and his wife Reydan. This Hieronymus 2014 may go on to become the most impressive of a long line of reds that have yet been made by Elephant Hill. A blend of 46% Merlot, 44% Malbec and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Gimblett Gravels (10%) with the remainder coming off the Bridge Pa Triangle, the wine spent 18 months in barrel and a further year in bottle prior to release. This wine is approachable upon release, after at least an hour in decanter and will age gracefully for at least 15 years. Hieronymus means 'one with a sacred name' and pays tribute to the Weiss family's ancestor, Hieronymus Ebner von Eschenbach, Lord Mayor of Nuremberg.

Smells

Brooding aromas of Mocca, cassis, blackcurrant and graphite, subtle savoury complexities of leather and forest floor.

Tastes

Breath-taking purity of dark berry fruit, dark chocolate, moccha with the characters changing to beautiful milk chocolate and espresso flavours lingering long after the wine is swallowed. Lovely mineral textures/flavours and chalky tannins provide beautiful structure and aid complexity. Not a hair out of place, but with smouldering latent power waiting to be unleashed, this is a wine for the long haul but one that can be approached with time in the decanter during its youth. Enjoy with high quality cuts of meat between now and 2030.
