This Esk Valley red blend is consistently one of the great value wines coming out of Hawkes Bay. With a long line of accolades that belie its modest price, previous vintages have been awarded Michael Cooper's Best Buy Red wine for the 2017 vintage and the 2018 vintage won Trophy Champion Merlot & Blends (Royal Easter Wine Show 2020). This newly released 2019 we think is even better and with a new, even lower price, is purely and simply a 'Must Buy" Drink now and also put some in the cellar.


Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"​This Merlot based blend grown in the arid, stoney soils of the famed Gimblett Gravels has long been a speciality of ours. With perfectly ripened fruit and custom made concrete fermenters we have produced a smooth and full bodied signature style, bursting with flavours of blackcurrant, plum and cedar. A beautifully pure, complex wine that can be enjoyed now or will age gracefully for several years."


90/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"It's beautifully ripe and delightfully fragrant on the nose showing Black Doris plum, blackcurrant, floral, clove and hazelnut aromas, followed by a flavoursome palate displaying youthful charm and silky flow. Upfront and very appealing. At its best: now to 2025."


Reviews for previous vintages below…


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)
"Offering outstanding value, the 2018 vintage is a blend of Merlot (49 per cent), Cabernet Sauvignon (33 per cent), Malbec (16 per cent) and Cabernet Franc (2 per cent), grown in the Gimblett Gravels and matured for a year in French oak barriques. Full-coloured, it is weighty and generous, with ripe, berryish, spicy flavours, showing very good complexity. Already approachable, it’s well worth cellaring to at least 2022."


91/100 Wine Enthusiast (2017 Vintage)
"This is classic Gimblett Gravels – with Merlot leading the way – at a bargain price. Notes of ripe blackberries, currents, warm earth, ground black pepper and dried savoury herbs with some oaky tones can be found on both the nose and the palate. It's full bodied and generously fruited, wound with a dusty thread of earthy tannins and a herbal finish. Drink now, with a rare steak or throughout the next decade."

    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

  • 5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

    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.
