Rhubarb, earthy, beet root, a little olive, definitely some astringency on the nose, savory, rich, a little sweeter and denser than the Escarpment, less cut and energy too, some black olive character, rhubarb and beet root in the. Big, rich, little powdery, dense and chewy almost cocoa like in the mouth.

Winemaker's Notes:

Larry McKenna is a legend in Martinborough, indeed throughout New Zealand, the man who steered Martinborough Vineyards to international acclaim. Established in 1999, Escarpment’s vineyards are located upon the alluvial loams in the “Te Muna” area that are blessed with good drainage and a cool summer microclimate. The Kupe Single Vineyard has a similar vine density to those found in Burgundy and produces a finely structured pinot noir that will provide fragrant and complex drinking for many years. A New Zealand classic.
