Winery notes (2022 Vintage)
"This is a rich and full flavoured Hawke's Bay Chardonnay. Its flavour profile is a mix of peach, grilled nuts, oatmeal and grapefruit with a subtle oak spice. It is both complex and delicious and a classic expression of Hawke's Bay Chardonnay.

A blend of contrasting Hawke's Bay vineyard sites. Fruit from parcels of old clone 95 vines in Bay View and old Mendoza vines from the Gimblett Gravels provide the wine with richness and texture, while a small parcel of clone 15 vines planted inland on a cooler river terrace at Maraekakaho provides acidity and a flinty grapefruit note."


4 Stars Michael Cooper (2022 Vintage)
"The vigorous 2022 vintage was harvested at Bay View, in the Gimblett Gravels and at Maraekakaho, then fermented and lees-aged for nine months in French oak barriques (10 per cent new). Bright, light lemon/green, it is mouthfilling, with very good depth of youthful, peachy, citrusy flavours, finely integrated toasty oak adding complexity, and fresh acidity. It needs time; best drinking mid-2024+."


91/100 Cameron Douglas MS, January 2023 (2022 Vintage)
"Ripe, youthful, familiar. Aromas of vanilla and nut, stone fruits and ripe red apples. Moderate oak scents with a mild toasty quality and youthful complexity and charm. On the palate a generous satin textured wine with contrasting acidity then flavours that mirror the baking and toasty wood qualities. Decent length and finish a wine for enjoyment on its own or with food. Best from 2023 through 2026."

5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2022 (2021 Vintage)
"It's elegantly fruited and delightfully expressed on the nose showing white flesh stone fruit, lemon peel, nougat and roasted cashew aromas, followed by a soothing palate that's ripe and fleshy. Beautifully harmonious and lingering with appealing complexity. At its best: now to 2026."


4 Stars Cuisine Chardonnay Tasting, August 2022 (2021 Vintage)
"Bold and bright stone fruit against oak-spice aromas present themselves straight away through the nose and segue through to the palate, which has the same bold fruit against creamy, rich dairy characteristics. This is a full-flavoured and robust expression of Hawke’s Bay chardonnay. "

Esk Valley thrived under Sir George Fistonich's ownership of Glenvale Winery since 1986. It evolved from a port and sherry market to a producer of innovative, high-quality wines. Winemaker Gordon Russell pushed boundaries, introducing new grape varieties and styles in Hawkes Bay.

From historic cellars in northern Hawkes Bay to the new winery in Gimblett Gravels, Esk Valley creates top-notch wines. Using traditional methods like concrete fermenters for red grapes, they continue to build their reputation.

Gordon Russell, born in New Plymouth, developed a passion for fine wine during his travels in Europe. Returning to New Zealand in 1986, he became Esk Valley's winemaker in 1993 after working for Villa Maria and Esk Valley as an assistant winemaker.

Gordon aims to craft wines that express their vineyard origins. By focusing on vineyard care, he simplifies the winemaking process. Esk Valley strives for a natural style, utilising wild yeast and extended lees ageing.

Esk Valley sources grapes from Hawkes Bay and Marlborough. Hawkes Bay's warm climate and gravel soils are ideal for reds and fuller whites. Marlborough, known for its unique Sauvignon Blanc, produces vibrant wines. Esk Valley offers a range including Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Syrah, Chardonnay, Verdelho, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and Pinot Noir.
