Escarpment 'Noir' Pinot Noir 2018
A soft, fresh and very juicy New Zealand Pinot.
Attractive red cherry and sweet liquorice aromas. Bottled without filtration. The wines structure and texture sit perfectly with ripe fruit flavours and combine with intriguing complexity. Soft, fresh and very juicy on the palate with a lingering clean finish. Extremely tasty. Enjoy with any red meat dishes but equally explore with salmon, chicken or pasta dishes.
The 'Noir' label from Escarpment brings together 35 years of wine making experience in New Zealand, creating a soft, bright, fruit forward wine which can be enjoyed immediately or will cellar successfully for a number of years. This is produced from 100% Martinborough hand harvested fruit, after 21 days the wine was pressed off and barrel aged for 11 months. This is a wonderful fresh expression on the Martinborough region, and showcases winemaker Larry McKenna's skill.
