The Terraces, Esk Valley, 75cl
Originally terraced in the late 1940s on a steep, north facing hillside beside the winery, 'The Terraces' is one of the most beautiful vineyard sites in New Zealand. Esk Valley's iconic wine, is an ultra-premium wine that is only produced in outstanding vintage years, and the amount made is always very small.
This is a handcrafted wine and true vineyard blend with all harvested fruit being co-fermented in a single open topped fermenter. All efforts have been made to produce a wine that is an expression of its site. The wine is deeply coloured and full of primary black fruits including cherry and blackberry. As a young wine, French oak notes complement the fruit, but with time, complexity and vineyard nuances will predominate. This wine has been sealed with a screw cap to guarantee the quality of each bottle and offer even greater cellaring potential.
