100% grown from Escarpment’s Te Muna Road site in what can be considered a perfect, cool dry season.
The summer allowed a smaller crop than usual 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.
