2017 Esk Valley Hawkes Bay Verdelho

Dry, crisp and spicy - a crowd pleasing wine with a unique story behind it!

Gold FWDC 93/100

Description

The Verdelho grape originates from the Portuguese Island of Madeira and has found a home at Esk Valley in the Hawkes Bay. Legendary winemaker Gordon Russell crafts this Esk Valley Verdelho into a beautifully textural, character filled and refreshingly dry wine that is indeed NZ's best example.

Smells

Notes of citrus and tropical fruits rise from the glass with hints of white flowers and minerals whispering beneath.

Tastes

The palate beautifully weighted with an almost fruit salad like array of flavours over delicate spice driven complexity with a long flavoursome finish. Winemaker Gordon Russell rates this wine as the best value wine that he makes and we wholeheartedly agree. It will appeal to lovers of full bodied dry Pinot Gris and matches beautifully with fresh seafood or lightly spiced Asian cuisine.
