Flavours are reminiscent of ripe pears and white stone fruit with delightful soft texture ensuring a long commanding finish.6 grams residual sugar (dry essentially) has enhanced the fruit flavours Pinot Gris is renowned for.

Cellar for up to five years or more, successfully..

Complete malolatic fermentation and lees stirring has enhanced the texture and mouth feel allowing it to match most entre dishes.A great alternative to Chardonnay it has been inspired by the classical French approach to the variety. It is an accurate reflection of Martinborough's unique terroir.

Grown on the alluvial gravel soils of the Martinborough Terrace during a perfect growing season for the district. A warm dry summer allowed fruit to ripen wonderfully producing powerful opulent fruit combing beautifully with barrel fermentation to create Burgundian inspired Pinot Gris.

Producer Information

Larry McKenna - otherwise known as Larry McPinot is the man behind Escarpment. His name goes hand-in-hand with the best quality Pinot Noir from New Zealand. Escarpment is registered as a Sustainable NZ producer and is currently following a 5 year plan to become organically certified.
The vineyards are sited above a natural escarpment above the Huarangarua River on ancient gravels. Overlooking them are the Aorangi Ranges where Maori legend has it that the Polynesian voyager Kupe abandoned 3 canoes. The upturned canoes are still clearly visible, silhouetted along the top of the ridge and Kupe' s silhouette takes pride of place on every Escarpment label.
After 21 years winemaking experience in Martinborough, Larry is now defining the terroir of the Martinborough geographic region with his exciting range of single vineyard wines.
In his understated way, Larry has advised 'I was awarded the George Fistonich medal by the NZ International Wine Show. It's one of those life time achievement things you get when you have been around too long.'
he soils of the vineyard are alluvial loams that were formed by the Huangarua River over 20,000 years ago. With very deep alluvial gravels now layered over the loams this composition ensures exceptional drainage, one of the key prerequisites for nurturing and producing premium quality, healthy grape vines. The climate is cool with summer days rarely exceeding 30 degrees centigrade. This allows the grapes to ripen slowly and to develop pure, powerful fruit characters with finely textured tannins. The rainfall is the lowest in the North Island with very stable weather patterns during the all important harvest period.
One of New Zealand's most famous winemakers, Larry McKenna is the man behind Escarpment. Larry's name goes hand in hand with the best quality Pinot Noir from New Zealand.
