Hand Picked - Foot Stomped
The Escarpment Vineyard, was born out of a passion for Pinot Noir. It is based around 24 hectares of prime viticultural land nestled on the banks overlooking the Huangarua River, Martinborough. Much is close-planted in the latest clones of Pinot Noir, supported by plantings of Pinot Gris and lesser plantings of Pinot Blanc, Riesling and Chardonnay. Escarpment vineyard is committed to sustainable winemaking and organic viticulture. The Escarpment Vineyard along with the Single vineyards Kiwa and Te Rehua have been accredited biogro status since 2019.

Perfume, elegant fruit flavours, and soft ripe tannins are all hallmarks of this exceptional Pinot Noir.

An uncharacteristically cool summer created the distinctive Escarpment style showing complexity, attractive texture and the perfect mix of black, red and green fruit flavours for which Pinot Noir is celebrated.

The fruit was hand harvested, 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. It has been aged completely in French oak barriques, of which 25% were new, for 11 months.

Inspired by the classic wines of Burgundy, this Pinot Noir is a tribute to Martinborough?s unique terroir. It will cellar gracefully for up to 10 years.
