Esk Valley red blend is consistently one of the great value wines coming out of Hawkes Bay. With a long line of accolades that belies its modest price, this is purely and simply a terrific wine to drink now but and also worth putting some in the cellar.

"​This wine was blended from grapes grown within the renown Gimblett Gravels Winegrowing District. These deep stony soils have excellent drainage and low vigour, ideal for the production of high-quality red wine. Our vineyard sites are close planted and yields per vine are kept low to maximise quality.

This is a smooth and elegant Gimblett Gravels blend. Densely coloured, it has a bouquet of red cherry, blackberry, dried herbs and cedar from barrel maturation. It is soft and generous in nature and can be enjoyed as a youthful wine, but possesses sufficient tannin to age gracefully for many years."
