Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"This single vineyard Chenin Blanc was aged on its lees with regular stirring for complexity and richness. Dry in style with a rich palate of baked apple, citrus and honey.

This wine reveals classic Chenin Blanc notes of baked apple, citrus and honey. It is dry in style with a full and rich palate, enhanced by long term ageing on yeast lees. It is delicious as a young wine but will gain complexity with time in the bottle."


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2020 Vintage)
"Already delicious, the debut 2020 vintage was harvested from young vines, grown inland at Mangatahi, and partly barrel-fermented. Bright, light lemon/green, it is invitingly scented and beautifully vibrant, with strong passionfruit and pineapple flavours, balanced acidity, just a hint of sweetness, and excellent delicacy, depth and harmony. An intensely varietal wine, it's one of the country's finest Chenin Blancs yet. Drink now or cellar."


Rated Excellent & 93/100 Cameron Douglas MS, May 2021 (2020 Vintage)
"Pure fruited bouquet with scents of green apple and lees textures, crumbled stones with a light flinty edge and white blossoms. Equally pure fruits with flavours of apple and lemon, a touch of pith then mineral and lees attributes that reflect the bouquet. Pristine polished acid line, a white flower and mineral quality and a long refreshing finish. Beautifully made, balanced and ready to drink from 2021 through 2026+."


4 ½ Stars Yvonne Lorkin, July 2021 (2020 Vintage)
"One of the things winemaker Gordon Russell knows about chenin blanc, is that if you give it an inch, it’ll take a mile. You’ve got to keep it semi-starved and its vigour in check in order to produce these gorgeous apple and honeysuckle-centric flavours. It’s spiritual home is the Loire Valley in France and it’s rarely seen in NZ, however Esk have been making chenin blanc for a very long time, capturing fresh-baked apple, creamy, caramelised notes, masses of mineral-edged aromatics perfectly. It’s richly structured and superb with creamy, savoury foods, so I’m thinking smoked fish pie for sure."


91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2021 (2020 Vintage)
"Youthfully attractive and elegantly lifted, the bouquet shows crunchy apple, white flesh peach and lemon peel aromas with a hint of flinty complexity. It's finely focused and linear on the palate displaying bright fruit flavours backed by firm acidity, finishing long and crisp-dry. At its best: now to 2026."

  • 5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

    5 star review  I've just ordered online for a friend in another city and I was impressed with the ease of use on the website. Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend
