Description

On Giants’ Shoulders is an exciting new venture by young husband and wife team Braden and Gabrielle and only made possible through the generosity of their family and some good fortune… securing an old-vine vineyard off a previous contract grower for Escarpment, the fruit from this vineyard would have likely gone into some NZ’s best wines. Now their third release and still maintaining the same high standard set by the very first release. Hand harvested and sorted, fruit was fermented naturally with the addition of 35% whole bunches and matured for 12 months in French Oak (30% new). At only 2 years of age this pinot has plenty of life left in it, enjoy with good company or age for 5-7 years.

Smells

Impressively floral yet shows plenty of wild red fruit concentration on the nose, subtle spice and sweet French oak.

Tastes

A very elegant yet juicy and mouth filling, with seamless bright red fruit, acid and silky tannin integration. Complex and very enjoyable with locally sourced roasted free-range chicken.
