Esk Valley Chardonnay 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Hawkes Bay is generally the warmest winemaking region in New Zealand and is the area that produces most of the best cabernet/merlot wines and a lot of the top chardonnays. The 2010 Chardonnay gives notes of ripe melon, guava and pear tart with hints of honeycomb and lightly browned toast. Medium bodied with a lovely silken texture, it has relatively high acid and a long honeydew finish. Drink this one now to 2014+.

Esk Valley is famous for its premium wine "The Terraces", which is only released those years when the terraced vines on the banks above the winery, produce an exceptional vintage Esk Valley is a boutique winery, but it is unique in that many of the techniques used to craft its award-winning wines are dictated by the winery itself. The old concrete vats, the layout of the buildings, and the absence of modern technology mean the people at Esk Valley have had to make wine in a simple, honest, hands-on way. The people at Esk Valley are as important to the wine-making process as the vines and the high quality grapes they produce. The main pre-requisite for working at Esk Valley is a genuine passion and excitement for wine. Read less
