INFORMATION OF INTEREST Escarpment Kiwa Pinot Noir 2015

TASTING NOTE

Colour: Clean, clear and bright. Garnet color with ruby reflections. Medium - low layer intensity. Very nice to look at.

Aroma: On the nose it is a clear representation of the variety and the terroir. Aromas of red fruit emerge strongly, such as currant, raspberry and currant. In a few minutes, the most mineral, earthy and spicy part will take center stage.

Taste: Elegant but firm at the mouth. Fine and tremendously delicate tannins will caress your palate, where they will go hand in hand with a pleasant and lively astringency. Persistent fresh finish.

MATCHING

Ideal with all kinds of meats without medium gustatory power, it will go hand in hand with baked chicken, stuffed turkey, rabbit roasts, salads with red fruit, L'Escala anchovies with escalivada and goat cheese salad with apple compote and nuts.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

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 “Nga Waka-o-Kupe” or 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’s aim is simple: to continually produce the very best of tomorrow’s definitive New World wines. “Complexity” “texture” and “structure” are key words (and motivators). Under Larry’s leadership the team aims to reward wine lovers with progressive and suggestive wines that encourage them to venture to the edge of wine loving and appreciation.
