Esk Valley


Hawke's Bay, New Zealand

 
Swing back the rustic cellar gate with its large insignia welded to it, and you take a step back in time.Situated in the north of New Zealand’s picturesque Hawkes Bay, at Bay View is the Esk Valley Estate winery. The winery sources fruit from Hawkes Bay, including the world-renowned Gimblett Gravels and Marlborough, as both regions consistently produce grapes of an extremely high quality. Esk Valley is famous for its premium wine The Terraces, which is only released those years when the terraced vines on the banks above the winery, produce an exceptional vintage. Esk Valley was first constructed by Englishman Robert Bird in 1933, including the concrete fermentation vats that are still used to this day. George Fistonich, founder of Villa Maria Estate purchased Glenvale as it was known back then and reinvented the winery as the Esk Valley brand – a boutique winery where the absence of modern technology mean the people at Esk Valley have had to make wine in a simple, honest, hands-on way. The passion of the people that work at Esk is very much the key to its remarkable wines non more so than Mr Esk himself Gordon Russell.
 
 
Winemaker: Gordon Russell is one of New Zealand's most recognised winemaking identities with his passionate approach to winemaking, and the enormous success he has achieved. Gordon was born in New Plymouth, and following University, his desire to travel took him to England and Europe for 3 years where is interest in different flavours and trying new foods, soon developed into an appreciation for fine wine. In 1986 Gordon returned to New Zealand, joining the cellar team at Villa Maria in 1987. Appointed Esk Valley winemaker in 1993, Gordon believes that the concept of 'texture' in a wine is as important as the aromas and flavours of the wine. He aims to produce premium hand-crafted wines that are both elegant and sophisticated, and which truly reflect the character of the individual vineyards.

Esk Valley Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec 2018

Hawke's Bay, New Zealand
  • Luxurious texture of red plums and blackcurrants
  • Authentic ‘hands on’ winemaking from Gordon Russell over delivers on value, with a traditional Merlot blend full of vivacious curves.
  • This delicious claret powers up your senses with generous fragrances of red and black plums, blackcurrants, and dried herbs. These flavours continue in the mouth joined by the ageing and barrel characteristics of pencil shavings and coffee plants. The memorable soft but rich tannins distinguish this wine, which are deceptively powerful, oozing class while filling out your palate.
  • Case of 6 ($17.90/bottle)
