From fruit picked off some of the oldest vineyards in Martinborough, an internationally renowned Pinot Noir appellation. Blessed by superior drainage and cool summers, a combination of slightly heavier soils and bespoke clones on own roots, always render a particularly eloquent Pinot Noir, so very articulate of clime and of place. Escarpment excels at formulating single vineyard wines from their small, but excellent, retinue of sites. Like the best wines of Burgundy, these individualistic editions offer marked differences in character and charm.
Escarpment are exemplary wines from special vineyards within Martinborough. The names of the unique vineyard sites and individual Cuvees are also relevant. Legend has it Kupe lead by the stars, voyaged across the ocean to discover Aotearoa. Escarpment celebrates this journey of discovery, an expression of some of the the oldest vines in the district. Fruit is treated to open top ferments in traditional wooden cuvees, hand plunged daily, rack and returned into a high proportion of new French oak barriques for maturation.
TASTING NOTES
Deep scarlet colour. Aromas of ripe red glace fruits and fragrant oak, dark compotes of cherry and of fig, marjoram and violet, scorched chocolate and the vapours of warm, plummy liqueur. Very much an old vine Pinot Noir, presenting a beautifully soft and ripe, pure expression of fruit within an impeccably crafted new world style, will continue to evolve handsomely, a wonderful counterpart to the finest cuisine.

About Escarpment Winery
Situated just 5 kilometres east of Martinborough village, Escarpment's 24 hectares of distinctive alluvial gravel, terraced land stretches out along the banks of the Huangarua River
Overlooking the vineyard are the Aorangi Ranges, the very hills made famous by Kupe the great Polynesian voyager who discovered New Zealand, according to Maori legend. Kupe left his three canoes, Nga Waka, on top of the range, giving rise to the now familiar landmark of the district, the three flat-topped hills on top of the range, which resemble unturned canoes. This warrior and his story provide the inspiration for the vineyard's distinctive brand and logo Escarpment»
