Back in July, 2016, our friends at Artisan Wine Depot invited us to a blind tasting of ten pinot noirs. One was Escarpment from New Zealand. Forthwith our review.
Their ”Te Rehua” 2013 Martinborough, New Zealand ($60). Dark, brooding, mineral nose, herbs, nuts, chocolate on the palate. A note of honeysuckle adds to a complex palate.
Escarpment Vineyard was established in 1998 as a joint business venture between Robert & Mem Kirby (of Australia’s Village Roadshow) and Larry & Sue McKenna. Collectively, these four directors bring to Escarpment a world of experience, skill and understanding to the nurturing and making of fine, deliciously sublime wine.
