  • Bottle £28.00
This wine has the thrilling aromatic tension of elderflower, gooseberry and lime, to give the mouth-filling richness. Total refreshment. (Walter Hicks) The Falcon wine committee “blind tasted” Esk Valley, against Rieslings from Germany and Alsace and this Kiwi wine won easily. This wine has won many prizes, Average critic score was 89 pts., but we agree with James Suckling who gave it 92 pts. (Rupert Brendon) (2) 13% vol
