Escarpment Pinot Noir 2015

100% Pinot Noir from vineyards in the Martinborough winegrowing region.

Fruit was hand harvested, fermented using indigenous yeasts, then gently handled without pumping until it was pressed. Hand plunged every 12 hours then left to macerate on skins for an average vat time of 18 days. Aged completely in 30% new French oak barriques for 11 months.

Winemaker's Comments

Inspired by the classic wines of Burgundy, this is a great tribute to Martinborough's unique terroir. Perfumed elegant fruit flavours and soft ripe tannins are all classic hallmarks of an exceptional Pinot Noir, and this distinctive Escarpment style shows complexity, attractive texture and the perfect mix of celebrated classic black, red and green fruit flavours.
