Esk Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2021

New Zealand / Marlborough

Andy's Tasting Notes

This has elegance yet still maintains that classic Marlborough intensity and freshness.  Leaning towards passionfruit rather than gooseberry, it is delightfully aromatic and exotic on the nose yet delivers textbook zesty, grassy characteristics that make this wine so refined and generous.

Price per bottle £12.20

Producer Info

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 winemakers at Esk Valley have had to make wine in a simple, honest, hands-on way.

Situated in the north of New Zealand’s picturesque Hawkes Bay, at Bay View is the Esk Valley Estate winery. The winery sources fruit from Hawkes Bay, including the world-renowned Gimblett Gravels, and Marlborough, as both regions consistently produce grapes of an extremely high quality.

An active and accredited member of Sustainable Wine Growing New Zealand (SWNZ). All Esk Valley’s vineyards are accredited by SWNZ and the viticultural team has worked hard to get all contract suppliers accredited as well.
