Description

Larry McKenna is a NZ winemaking legend and has spent around 3-decades visiting some of the great Burgundy Domaines... his focus to create NZ Chardonnay & Pinot Noir with the same ethereal textures, complexities, and elegance. Larry is in the throes of leaving Escarpment but has clearly past his knowledge and skills onto Tim Bourne the new winemaker. Watch this space, as we are sure the excellent trend will continue.

Smells

Savoury/smoky mineral complexities over nectarine and yellow tree fruits with refined spicy oak aromas.

Tastes

Rife with yellow fruits infused with fine spicy oak, savoury/smoky Burgundy like mineral complexities, creamy textural mouthfeel and perfect acidity adding poise to the rich finish. It tastes like freshly roasted popcorn with lashings of butter, rich and creamy in a full-bodied style, with class and style. Outstanding Chardonnay in a NZ meets Burgundy style... it will cellar superbly for at least a decade if well stored, only becoming rounder and richer with time.
