Description

As far as fine wines go, this Esk Valley Winemakers Reserve Chardonnay is one of the best values around, its price tag still yet to catch up to its undeniable quality. In 2016 it's been labelled Bay View in reference to the northern end of Hawke's Bay where the Esk Valley winery is, the more northern flavours showing through with more ripeness and richness than past releases.

Smells

A beautiful and very complete fragrance with gentle white flowers, vanilla, gun smoke, peaches, buttered popcorn and nutty oak.

Tastes

Beautifully rounded and rich in the front palate before a big whack of fresh grapefruit acidity energises the palate, the smoky oak, peaches and creamy buttered popcorn insinuating themselves onto the long, nutty finish. A serious wine that is only a baby now at less than a year old. ideally give it another year to knit together and enjoy over the next 5 to 8 years.
