New Zealand Tasting with Gordon Russell of Esk Valley

Dovehouse Parade Solihull

7.00pm - 9.00pm on Wednesday 25 September 2013

A very special opportunity to meet Gordon Russell Senior Winemaker of the renowned Esk Valley winery which is situated in Hawkes Bay New Zealand and taste a selection of his fabulous wines.

Esk Valley is considered to be a high quality boutique producer but it is also part of the giant Villa Maria group.

A full range of whites (Sauvignon Chardonnay Riesling Pinot Gris Chenin Verdelho) and reds (Malbec Cabernet Merlot Syrah Pinot Noir) are produced; some of the very best wines are made from grapes grown on the terraced vineyards surrounding the winery others from further afield in Hawkes Bay and Marlborough.

Gordon always looks to achieve wines with "texture". Balanced elegant wines with individuality from being "hand-crafted". Over 20 year's experience at Esk Valley ensures that this is always the case!
