Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"A lighter, complex and more fragrant expression of Syrah totally unlike its siblings of the Gimblett Gravels. From a tiny plot of Syrah planted in limestone soil atop The Terraces vineyard, this is a special and ultra-rare bottling.

This is a complex and intriquing wine. Aromas of rose petal, red berries and grilled meats are compelling. The wine is round and mouthfilling with a red fruited profile, but a firm tannic backbone provides complexity and length. Raised in old large format barrels the wine has little oak flavour, instead showcasing the beauty of its unique site.

At the summit of “The Terraces” vineyard lies a limestone plateau, subdivided into four small plots of Syrah, totalling 1.1 hectares. Gently sloping to the north this is a warm site, but moderated by the sea breeze from the Pacific Ocean which lies 1 kilometre to the east. Once the home of Heipipi Pa, this vineyard offers incredible views of northern Hawkes Bay and with its limestone and shell base produces a unique wine. Planted in 2007, with the Limmer Clone the dry farmed vines are cane pruned and intensively managed to produce wine of exceptional quality."

5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, June 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Beautifully composed and elegantly perfumed, showing Black Doris plum, spiced cherry, olive and toasted nut characters. It's succulent and supple on the palate with excellent weight and roundness, wonderfully complemented by silky texture and polished tannins. Gorgeously harmonious and elegant with a lengthy spicy finish. From the Heipipi The Terraces vineyard. At its best: 2023 to 2034."

4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2019 Vintage)
"The distinctive, debut 2019 vintage was grown on the north-facing Heipipi Vineyard, at Bay View. Harvested from 12 year-old vines and matured for 19 months in seasoned French oak puncheons, it is deep ruby, fragrant, savoury and supple, with impressive complexity. Celebrating elegance rather than density, it's already highly approachable."

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.
