Esk Artisanal Chenin Blanc 2021


This single vineyard Chenin Blanc was aged on its lees with regular stirring for complexity and richness. Dry in style with a rich palate of baked apple, citrus and honey.

This could be the best priced NZ Chenin on the market. This is a single vineyard wine from the Two Terraces Vineyard situated inland at Mangatahi. The Chenin Blanc plantings are located on the lower of the two gravel river terraces formed by the Ngaruroro River.

This wine reveals classic Chenin Blanc notes of baked apple, citrus and honey. It is dry in style with a full and rich palate, enhanced by long term ageing on yeast lees. It is delicious as a young wine but will gain complexity with time in the bottle.
