2022 Esk Valley Hawke's Bay Chardonnay

“Outrageous Chardonnay value” our panel said. An eyepopping 94/100 from Cameron Douglas Master Sommelier… unusually high rating for a sub $20 wine… but seriously well-deserved!

Always a beacon of value… it’s impossible to overstate the quality of this 2022 Esk Valley Chardonnay relative to its normal price. It is delightfully under-priced and over-endowed. Chardonnay was one of the stars of the 2022 vintage. Crafted by the master Gordon Russell, it’s deliciously fruited with a creamy, biscuity core and a level of concentration rarely experienced in similarly priced wine. You’ll be spoilt every time you open a bottle.


Pure nectarine and peach highlighted against Anzac biscuit and hazelnut, with exciting nuances of pink grapefruit and struck match.


Mouth-watering piquancy bursting with stone fruits, leading to a creamy, seductive centre of Anzac biscuit, vanilla, hazelnut. It’s outrageously rewarding for the money with a finish to die for. Enjoy with your favourite poultry and roast pork dishes between now and 2025… keep a glass for after dinner.
