From the original historic cellars in the north of Hawkes Bay to Esk Valley’s new purpose built winery within the confines of the renowned Gimblett Gravels, Esk Valley continues to produce a collection of wines regarded amongst New Zealand's finest. Utilising a very traditional and hands off approach including concrete fermenters for the finest parcels of red grapes, Esk Valley continues to build on its reputation.
The North Island’s Hawkes Bay region has a sunny, maritime climate perfect for slowly ripening Chardonnay promoting fruit intensity and freshness. These rich, textual wines express stonefruit, fig and honeyed characteristics, with hints of tropical fruit.
This is a medium bodied and elegant Hawke's Bay Chardonnay. Its flavor profile is a mix of ripe peach, intermingled with hints of butter, grilled nuts, grapefruit and subtle oak spice. It is both complex and delicious.
Chardonnay is the most versatile white wine to pair with food. Enjoy with fresh seafood, chicken Caesar salad, or an antipasto platter.
