The Edge by Escarpment Pinot Noir

The new 2018 vintage has now released, from a spectacular summer that allowed for an early harvest and yielding a bright and soft style of Pinot. Pale ruby in the glass, aromas of bright cherry and rose petal, light in body yielding clean easy drinking and fruity wine.

Escarpment is one of the most famous producers in the less famous sub-region of Martinborough - Te Muna. (In)conveniently left off most wine maps of the region, Te Muna lies to the South-East of the town, slightly higher, slightly cooler and more frost prone than the main river terrace. Te Muna Road is still not fully sealed, making it less accessible to the casual tourist.

Founded in 1998 and quickly gained acclaim through their winemaker Larry McKenna and single vineyard Pinot Noirs - most of which need a minimum of 5+ years of age.

'The Edge' is a lighter style made for early enjoyment, and definitely a more convenient price point.

100% Martinborough Pinot Noir, grown on the alluvial gravel terraces for which the district has become famous. A cooler season allowed a more elegant expression inclining more towards the classic European model. The flavours are more in the complex red berry spectrum combined with a soft textural mouth feel.
An immediately accessible wine, which will improve over the next 2 years. Enjoy with full flavoured fish dishes, any red meats or vegetarian plates.
