Esk Valley

Winemakers Reserve Merlot/Malbec/Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

With 18 months barrel ageing, this voluptuous blend delivers a rich, ripe supple wine, which will only improve with cellaring.

There’s so little need for science in the way we make our wine. It’s far more artisanal and so much more hands-off. It’s about learning about your vineyards and the possibilities they can provide. It’s about trying to interpret the vintage. I try to bring some consistency of quality and an Esk Valley style and signature to what we do. Gordon Russell
