Heipipi – The Terraces on Esk Valley veinimõisa tippvein, mille viinamarjad tulevad Heipipi viinamarjaistandusest, mis on vaid 1 hektari suurune. Veini valmistamisel kasutatakse ainult parimaid marjasid, mis korjatakse ainult ühe päeva jooksul. Malbec, Merlot ja Cabernet Franc viinamarjad korjatakse koos ja fermentatsioon toimub metsiku pärmi abil 80. aastat vanades betoonanumates, millel järgneb 17 kuu pikkune küpsemine uutes Prantsuse tammest vaatides. Veini aroomis on peamiselt tunda tumedaid marju. Maitse on täidlane ja siidiste tanniinidega.

Robert Parker (RP) : 94 Points (2014)

Deep, dark and intense, there are 330 cases of the 2014 Heipipi The Terraces Malbec Merlot Cabernet Franc. Plummy and rich, it’s full-bodied, with velvety tannins that give a sense of plushness in the mouth. Traces of oak remain, hinting at cedar and vanilla, but what impresses is the depth and power of the fruit, which is expressed without any sense of jamminess or surmaturité. Give it a couple of years in the cellar, and drink it over the next decade. Rating: 94+

James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2014)
This harnesses the magic violety fragrance that merlot can achieve in this part of New Zealand to good effect and is backed with blueberry aromas and flavors. The tannins are fine and even. A class act from start to finish.
