Double Gold Medal – New Zealand International Wine Show 2022

A signature wine style from Esk Valley and regarded amongst the classic wines of New Zealand. First released in 1991 this dry style Rosé must be one of New Zealand's most awarded Rosés and is made from Merlot grapes grown in cool inland sites in Hawkes Bay. It's such a clean, bright and refreshing style it's the perfect foil to those hot days. 

Winery notes (2022 Vintage)
"This dry style Rosé is widely regarded as New Zealand's premium Rosé and has won many awards since its first vintage in 1991. It is an excellent choice with many foods or as an aperitif. It is a beautiful pale luminescent pink, dry to taste with aromas and flavours of redcurrants, strawberry and fresh picked herbs."

Reviews for the 2021 vintage below…

Rated Excellent, 5 Stars & 93/100 NZ Wine Rater, March 2022 (2021 Vintage)
"Deeper pink with a vermilion tinge. Pronounced, attractive nose with juicy currant, quince, raspberry and a saline twist. Lighter than expected on the palate with crunchy redcurrant fruit and a tasty, sappy herbal element. Possesses nice freshness with good balance and length."

4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2021 Vintage)
"For many years, this was New Zealand’s most successful rosé on the show circuit. From relatively cool, inland sites, the 2021 vintage is a Merlot-based wine with a bright pink hue. Fragrant, it has fresh, very generous peach, strawberry and spice flavours, a hint of apricot, and an almost imperceptible sliver of sweetness (3.9 grams/litre of residual sugar), balanced by appetising acidity."

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.
