The Artisanal Collection is a new range of fine wines with winemaker Gordon Russell’s artistry and vision on full display, yielding soulful wines that express Esk Valley’s character and Hawkes Bay home.
In the Collection, classic Hawkes Bay wine styles are given the Esk Valley and Gordon Russell treatment. A barrel-fermented Chardonnay, unique Malbec dominant blended red wine and a cluster fermented Syrah form the backbone of the collection.
This full bodied dry Rose is savoury and complex. Made from Cabernet Franc it showcases the herbal nature of the grape, its complex flavours ranging from a medley of red fruits to brambly herbal notes. Attractively pale in colour with a rich and dry mouthfeel it's the ideal wine for the bar or the dining table.
