Escarpment Te Rehua Pinot Noir 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine was grown on the Barton Vineyard, Huangarua Road, Martinborough from vines over 22 years old. A combination of deep alluvial gravels which the Martinborough Terraces are renowned for and a blend of many clones grown in a very sheltered spot always rewards us with a classic example of New World Pinot Noir. It was open topped fermented in traditional wooded cuvees, hand plunged every 12 hours, with a total vat time of 18 days. After pressing it was matured in 40% new French oak barriques for 18 months. It was bottled without fining or filtration, promoting soft mouth feel and texture. It has a unique site derived complexity combined with black cherry/ plum fruit flavours. It will continue to develop for up to 10 years and will always be a wonderful counterpart to any game food.
