Description

Escarpment is recognised worldwide for its incredible Pinot Noir and Chardonnays and this Pinot Gris cements them even further as an inspirational, small top-quality producer that excels in all they do. This is not your average Pinot Gris, rather true to their philosophy they are always exploring boundaries and aim to exhibit them in their winemaking approach. The use of barrel fermentation has helped them create a Burgundian-inspired Pinot Gris, a wine layered with complexity, a creamy texture, and a long finish, reminiscent of a G&T-like bitter finish. Delicious and inspiring on every level and this is confirmed by NZ Wine Rater scoring it 96 points. That’s taking NZ Pinot Gris to a whole new quality level.

Smells

beguiling notes of ripe pears, guava, Manuka honey, brioche and freshly toasted sourdough slathered with lots of butter.

Tastes

Flavours of ripe pears, white stone fruit, vanilla and prince melon are enhanced by the creamy, buttery texture and subtle oak handling, all making for a stunning dry wine with great mouthfeel and richness, yet balance and poise. A wine that is simply irresistible but will cellar 5-6years+. Serve with hard cheese or crispy pork belly.
