Esk Valley Winemakers Reserve Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay


Often one of the region’s most distinguished Chardonnays. The 2018 vintage (5*) is a single-vineyard wine, hand-picked at Bay View and fermented with indigenous yeasts in French oak barriques (40 per cent new). Bright, light yellow/green, with a smoky bouquet, it is a medium to full-bodied wine, full of youthful vigour, with deep stone-fruit flavours, mealy and biscuity notes adding complexity, lively acidity and a tightly structured, long finish. Best drinking 2022+.
