Martinborough NZ sample 6 pack
Winery : Various
Silky, syrupy, supple and textured, Martinborough straddles the divide between fruitiness and savouriness in divine form.
Pack contains 1 each of these wines:
2014 Craggy Range Te Muna Road Pinot Noir: DOUBLE GOLD 2016 Six Nations Wine Challenge. From the old, stony soils of the higher terraces on Te Muna Rd.
2015 Escarpment Pinot Noir: Larry McKenna and partners established Escarpment on the Te Muna terraces in 1998. This area has proven to be one of the best for producing excellent pinot. The Escarpment style is spicily soft, with trademark round tannins.
2015 Ata Rangi Pinot Noir: Glistening and deep crimson hues, meaty/licorice aromas mingle with rich plum and dark cherry fruit. Characteristic Ata Rangi heightened slate/wet stone, with a floral lift. The crystalline clarity of fruit in the mouth is given depth and texture by ultra fine, perfectly ripe, rounded tannins. Raymond Chan Wine Reviews 19.5/20
2014 Palliser Estate Pinot Noir: Martinborough pioneer, established nearly 3 decades ago, and consistently producing one of the best value pinots of the region. Vintage 2014 has darkly intense full fruit flavours and is ultra smooth in the mouth, the complete pinot package.
2016 Pencarrow Pinot Noir: Pencarrow always shows abundant black fruits, and plum with licorice and spice. Fruit and oak tannins provide a savoury framework to complement the full fruit flavours.
2015 Martinborough Vineyard Te Tera Pinot Noir: Junior wine of Martinborough Vineyard. Succulent and supple with exotic spice with rich cherry fruit. Just a touch of toasty oak.
