Esk Valley has come a long way since Sir George Fistonich purchased the historic Glenvale Winery from the Bird Family in 1986. From a time when ports and sherries ruled the market, Esk Valley began forging a reputation for its innovative and quality wines. Under winemaker Gordon Russell Esk Valley broke boundaries introducing new grape varieties and new wine styles to Hawkes Bay.
This is a very aromatic and intensely flavoured wine true to its Hawkes Bay origins. Its flavours are a mix of ripe tropical fruits, citrus and cooler notes of mint and fresh herbs. It is an elegant and full-flavoured style with a crisp dry finish which provides freshness and length to the palate. A perfect match for seafood, goats cheese and many Asian inspired dishes.
