Escarpment Pinot Noirs
Winery : Escarpment
The Escarpment vineyards are planted on the famous Martinborough terrace of alluvial gravels, overlooked by the Aorangi Ranges, the hills made famous by Kupe the great Polynesian voyager who discovered New Zealand, according to Maori legend.
2016 Escarpment Pinot Noir: This is the Escarpment style in a nutshell - perfume, elegant fruit, soft and ripe tannins, creating the characteristic volume and texture in the mouth.
2017 Kupe Pinot Noir: 'A wonderful fusion of white pepper, red and black cherry and a suspicion of cinnamon on the nose moves onto a palate that is juicy and vivid with freshness. Fine tannins weave a firm structure that is dense and elegant in equal measure. There is real, deep substance here without one ounce of fat. Lovely.'
