Escarpment Pinot Noir 2016/2017
Located 5km east of Martinborough village, Escarpment own 24 hectares of alluvial gravel, terraced land that stretches along the banks of the Huangarua River. Plantings are weighted towards Pinot Noir (70%) but also include Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Riesling. A perfumed, delicate Pinot Noir, with elegantly textured tannins and soft and supple fruit. Escarpment's style is one of 'the perfect mix of black, red and green fruit flavours'. It will cellar gracefully for up to 10 years. An excellent marriage with crispy pork belly.
