Description

Esk Valley Heipipi The Terraces is one of the iconic wines of NZ, picturesque hillsides with a wine made to reflect the grandeur and uniqueness of this site. Organic faming principals, dry farmed and almost unique to Esk, the entire vineyard was harvested at one time (a field blend), a mix of Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Sexy, seriously smooth, deep, dark and brooding, one for the cellar for sure. With every sip, I conjure the beautiful vineyard scene in my mind.

Smells

hedonistic aromas of dark cherries, blackberries, black plums, red liquorice, fresh fennel with complexing smoky and vanilla nuances.

Tastes

The depth and concentration in this wine are outstanding, silky smooth texture, like satin and lace are titillating the taste buds. Dark fruit flavours with smoky, earthy and herbal tinges add to the overall complexity. Ideally drink at its peak 2030-2035, if you can wait, it will be hard. If you open sooner, decanting is recommended. Roast red meats are made for this wine.
