Dark ruby-red in colour. The bouquet is fine in proportion with fragrant aromas of lifted dark-red cherry and berry fruit entwined with dark-red and violet florals, alongside subtle notes of fresh and dark herbs and aromatic oak. This has excellent fruit focus and expression with vitality and a concentrated core. The palate is rich, sweet and lively, vibrant fruit flavours of dark-red berry fruit interwoven with an amalgam of fresh and dark herbs and violet florals. The mouthfeel is energetic and the fruit is supported by fine structure and grip. The fruit is enlivened by fresh vibrant acidity on the long finish.

The Escarpment winery and vineyards are sited above a steep cliff carved by the Huarangarua River over thousands of years. The vineyards are overlooked by the Aorangi Ranges. As legend would tell, Maori navigator Kupe abandoned three canoes there after discovering the land now known as New Zealand. The upturned canoe shapes are clearly visible on the skyline high above the winery. Resting on 60 acres of alluvial gravel in the expansive Te Muna Valley hear Martinborough this is really a magical place. Te Muna translates from the Maori language as ‘special place or ‘secret’. Escarpment Vineyard Martinborough Limited is a joint venture between Larry and Sue McKenna of Martinborough, and Robert and Mem Kirby of Australia ( who also own Yabby Lake in the Mornington Peninsula of Australia and most notably, Village Roadshow Productions). The company’s vineyards provide 70 percent of Escarpment’s grape supply. The winery buildings are modest and inauspicious, standing watch on the renowned Martinborough River Terraces and overlooking the river itself. The barrel room is tucked underground and enjoys cool and humid conditions below its grassy roof.
