Perfume, elegant fruit flavours, and soft ripe tannins are all hallmarks of this exceptional Pinot Noir. Perfect weather in Martinborough during flowering in December 2007 resulted in an ideal crop. A normal warm dry summer followed creating 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. 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.
:Black cherry is very prominent on the nose with behind blackberries adding character and freshness. The palate has a lovely mix of black fruits and fleshy mulberry. There is sweetness of fruit richness of flavour the fleshy feel helped by rounded tannins. Fresh red fruits brighten up the finish. Derek Smedley MW
