Wine Regions

LOCATED IN THE SOUTH PACIFIC, NEW ZEALAND IS A COUNTRY WITH EXTREMELY DIVERSE LANDSCAPES AND A CLIMATE THAT IS IDEAL FOR PREMIUM WINES

New Zealand has many different wine regions, each with its own climate and suitability to specific varieties. From the vineyards of Northland to the world’s most southern vineyards in Central Otago, New Zealand has the capacity to produce a wide range of styles.

Esk Valley sources its grapes from two of New Zealand’s most famous wine regions. Hawkes Bay on the east coast of the North Island has long been famous for its classic wine styles. This warm maritime climate and gravel based soils are ideal for the production of high quality reds and fuller white wines. It is from Hawkes Bay that Esk Valley sources its Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Syrah, Chardonnay, Verdelho and Pinot Gris.

Marlborough at the northern tip of the South Island is renowned the world over for its unique style of Sauvignon Blanc. With its cooler nights, Marlborough produces wines with a freshness and intensity of flavour that is rare in the wine world. This is the source of Esk Valley’s Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Pinot Noir.
