Food Pairings for Escarpment Chardonnay
The Escarpment “Insight Series” allows individual vineyard expression from exceptional sites within the Martinborough Geographic Indication. The partners of Escarpment Vineyard are proud to release the second vintage of our Kupe Chardonnay. The season has given us perfectly ripe fruit grown on the Martinborough Terrace’s free draining alluvial gravels. It was barrel fermented in 30% new oak and aged on fermentation lees for 12 months before being bottled in April 2009. Showing ripe but restrained fruit, intelligent use of oak and a flinty mineral backbone it is at the pinnacle of the style in New Zealand. It will age gracefully for up to 10 years and compliment most kaimoana or entrée dishes.
