ESK VALLEY WINEMAKER RESERVE MERLOT MALBEC CABERNET
Thirty year old vines produce lively but elegant grapes that are left to do their thing in 80 year old concrete vats. The fermenting must is left open to the elements and wild yeast to progress as the winery dictates, not how Gordon wants it, he is guided by the year's fruit. Rested for 17 months before blending in French Oak barrels while this is not a natural wine it is unfiltered and unfined, producing a big and rambunctious wine to enjoy now or keep for 10 years plus.
This region is one of the real treats of the wine world, producing refined and elegant wines that you will fall in love with. This video captures some of that and shows what makes the work Gordon carries out so special.
