100% grown from Escarpment’s Te Muna Road site in what can be considered a perfect, warm dry season.
The summer allowed the fruit to ripen slowly, producing powerful opulent flavours and a flinty mineral backbone which combine beautifully with barrel fermentation to create Burgundian inspired Chardonnay.
Flavours are reminiscent of white stone fruit with delightful soft texture ensuring a long commanding finish. Partial malolactic fermentation and lees stirring has enhanced the texture, complexity and mouth feel allowing it to match most entrée dishes and seafood.
It is an accurate reflection of Martinborough’s unique terroir. Cellar for up to five years or more, successfully.
Handpicked fruit from low yielding vines has produced an elegant, deeply scented wine with sweet, ripe cherry and plum flavours with a round and well balanced finish, with savoury and roasted oak characters. Aged in French oak barriques, half new, this handcrafted single vineyard wine can be enjoyed now or cellared for up to seven years.
