Esses Estate is the located with pristine surrounds of Kaikoura Seaward ranges, with stunning views across the peninsula and along Kaikoura coastline. 20-year-old vines over 1.5ha are the passion of Aaron and Mel Skinner.

Mel and Aaron are passionate sparkling lovers, and having searched the world, found a gorgeous little plot of vines located in the magnificent foothills of Kaikoura. Esses is the only vineyard near Kaikoura township and specialises solely in Méthode Traditionnelle.

Winery notes (NV)
"Seth is a combination of the 2017 earthquake vintage and the 2018 vintage. The 2017 harvest was gently whole bunch pressed on the vineyard in a traditional wooden basket press. It was then transported 7 hours due to the roads closed from landslides to the other side of Marlborough, and matured in the winery for nearly two years before being blended with our 2018 vintage and undergoing tirage."

Dosage: 6 g/l
Time on Lees: 48 months

5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (NV)
"Rich, creamy wine with ginger, brioche, and citrus flavours supported by mellow acidity."

Rated Excellent & 94/100 Cameron Douglas MS (NV)
"Youthful and lifted bouquet with scents of white smoke, citrus, white peach and yellow apple, all laced with a fine autolysis suggesting brioche and oatmeal bread. Dry with an excellent weight and energy, youthful and plush with a vibrant velvet textured mousse. Acidity keeps the palate fresh and accentuates the citrus and autolysis highlights. Balanced, well made and ready with a citrus peel, peach and apple fruits quality."

5 Stars & 18.5/20 (93) Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Reviews (NV)
"This has a soft bouquet, unfolding aromas of orchard fruit, citrus, sea minerals, pastry and yeasty autolysis. Medium-full bodied, aromas of apple, lemon and a suggestion of pineapple melded with sea shells, warm pastry and delicate spice. This wine shows lively acidity and youth,enriched by toasty autolysis details. Creamy and vibrant mousse injects freshness and lends an appetising finish."

4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (NV)
"This fresh, racy, non-vintage wine was estate-grown in Kaikoura and disgorged after maturing on its yeast lees for over four years. It is bright, light lemon/green, with crisp, citrusy, yeasty, very vigorous flavours, biscuity notes adding complexity, and a smooth finish."
