…punches above its weight this year … deliciously drinkable now and therefore easy to assess with confidence. A supple wine with power and dazzling purity.
– Huon Hooke, The Real Review
Winemaker Larry McKenna now has 30 years of experience with Martinborough Pinot Noir, and its on full display in this blend assembled from various plots around the village.
– Wine Enthusiast
Supple, stylish pinot noir with dark cherry, fresh herb, spice, anise, and subtle oak flavours. Gentle tannins provide support without compromising drinkability. Lovely purity and subtle power. Drink 2017 to 2023

Venture to the edge with Escarpment” say the tasting notes accompanying the wines. Just don’t play Grand Master Flash and The Furious Five while you’re doing that, OK? Spicy and stalky, aniseed, red and black cherries, fresh cut cedar, sage and thyme perfume. Medium bodied, slightly sharp, but boisterous and energetic, with grainy tannin, brisk sappy acidity, and an insistently tannic, positive finish, with grilled meat and sweet and sour flavours carrying on. Good stuff.
