User Reviews for Escarpment Chardonnay

Winemaker's Notes:

One of New Zealand’s most famous winemakers, Larry McKenna is the man behind Escarpment. Escarpment is registered as a Sustainable NZ producer and is currently following a 5 year plan to become organically certified. The vineyards are sited above a natural escarpment above the Huarangarua River on ancient gravels. Overlooking them are the Aorangi Ranges where Maori legend has it that the Polynesian voyager Kupe abandoned 3 canoes - hence the shape. Kupe’s image is on the label. After 21 years winemaking experience in Martinborough, Larry believes it is time to start defining the terroir of the Martinborough geographic region with a range of single vineyard wines. The flavours of this Chardonnay are reminiscent of white stone fruit with delightful soft texture ensuring a long commanding finish. Complete malolactic fermentation and lees stirring has enhanced the texture, complexity and mouth feel allowing it to match most entrée dishes and kaimoana. It is an accurate reflection of Martinborough’s unique terroir. Cellar for up to five years or more, successfully.
