RESTRICTED cellar sell out… 2014 vintage being urgently cleared to accommodate reserve stocks of 2015/2016/2017 vintages for select international wine lists.

"Depth, creaminess and great length with plenty of poise...what more could you want?" says Robert Parkers Wine Advocate! You’d normally fork out close to $480/dozen for this World Class Kiwi Chardonnay made by icon NZ winemaker Larry McKenna. Escarpment have literally run out of room in their cellars. Reserve stocks of 2015 & 2016 vintages are exacerbated by the 2017 now transitioning from barrel to bottle to cellar. They’ve decided to urgently clear 2014 vintage holdings… 385 x 6-packs - ½ price at $119.94 per 6-pack. They came to FWD Co. knowing we can sell it in a heartbeat and keep it under the general public radar to avoid any collateral damage to this internationally revered NZ brand. If you’re reading this… you are one of a restricted group of FWD Co. customers to receive this sensational offer – enjoy your ½ price world class Chardonnay.

Description

A real return to form for this label, not least due to the exceptional vintage, Larry McKenna's Escarpment Chardonnay 2014 is a stylish, flinty and very French style of wine, with a long, mealy, nutty finish. Much more ambitious and structured than most New Zealand Chardonnays, with some tannic grip hitting the mid-palate and teasing out the long, citrus-filled finish, it's a classic and refined Chardonnay from one of this country's true masters.

Smells

A hint of flinty, mineral complexity, with grapefruit, lemon, marzipan and white peach.

Tastes

Nutty, mealy and elegant, there's loads of fruit weight on the mid-palate, giving way to oatmeal biscuits and creamy mealiness on the long, citrusy, nuanced finish. A wine for foodies, this is at its best now and through 2020.
