Tasting Notes

Bay View fruit provides ripe stone fruit characters while our vineyard sites inland on cooler river terraces above the Tutaekuri and Ngaruroro Rivers bring acidity and flinty grapefruit notes.

Producer details

Esk Valley sources the grapes it uses to produce its fine wines from two main wine regions in New Zealand - Hawkes Bay and Marlborough. All the fruit that goes to make Esk Valley wines comes either from their own vineyards or from long-term contracts with local growers who are all supported by a dedicated viticultural team. This combination enables Esk Valley to maintain a consistent, high quality. Just behind the old winery lies Esk’s famous terraced vineyard, believed to be the first of its kind in New Zealand, with its stunning views over the bay and out to sea; home of the renowned ‘Heipipi The Terraces’ wine.

In the vineyard

The fruit for this wine was sourced from vineyards planted in three of Hawkes Bay’s many sub regions. Shoot thinning, leaf plucking and bunch thinning are all practised in the pursuit of quality.

In the winery

The individual vineyard parcels were harvested separately in mid to late March and fermented in both tank and French oak barriques (48%). The finished wines were left on their yeast lees with regular stirring until blending and bottling. A small percentage of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation to naturally soften the wine.

Food Recommendations

Ideally suited to rich seafood dishes, especially crayfish and scallops or white meat dishes.
