Esk Valley Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec 2022

If this isn't consistently the best value red wine produced in Hawke's Bay, we'd love to know what is.


The 2017 was Michael Cooper's red wine Buy of the Year. The 2018 won the Trophy for Champion Merlot Dominant Red at NZ's second largest wine show. The 2019 & 2020 vintages were named in Andrew Caillard MW's Gimblett Gravels Annual Vintage Selections (AVS). The 2021 was another stunner with an impressive 94pts from Decanter, so we're waiting with baited breath to see what this remarkable wine wins next.

Given the humble price this amazing wine sits at, it's pretty clear that something very special is going on here and the 2022 is another excellent vintage of this absolute giant-killer of a wine. 

Winemaker Gordon Russell is the master of making wines of finesse and easy drinkability at Esk Valley and this 2022 merlot cabernet malbec is no exception. It's rich and full-bodied with soft dark berry and cherry flavours on the palate. It's also quirkily sealed in a clear / flint bottle which we absolutely loved. Sensational buying. A must try wine for any fan of good Hawke's Bay red.

Tasting Notes

The winery writes "This is a smooth and fruit orientated Gimblett Gravels blend. Densely coloured, it has a bouquet of dried herbs, red cherry, blackberry with subtle hints of cedar from a period of barrel maturation. It is soft and generous in nature and can be enjoyed as a youthful wine, but possesses sufficient tannin to age gracefully for many years."
