$34.99 per Bottle
$209.94 per pack

100% grown from Escarpment’s Te Muna Road site in what can be considered a long cool season. The summer allowed fruit to ripen slowly, producing powerful opulent flavours and a flinty mineral backbone which combine beautifully with barrel fermentation to create Burgundian inspired Chardonnay.

Expert Reviews

The 2012 Chardonnay has a lovely peachy nose with tropical accents of pineapple and guava supported by savory sulfides and cashew nuts. Medium-bodied, it fills the palate with lots of stone fruit and tropical flavors, finishing long with great freshness injected into the richness. Great value! Lisa Perrotti-Brown, eRobertParker.com #216 (Part 2) January 2015, Rating 91

Winery Tasting Notes

Palate

Flavours are reminiscent of white stone fruit with delightful soft texture ensuring a long commanding finish.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

In 1999, Robert and Mem Kirby and Larry and Sue McKenna met for the first time, and quickly realized they shared a great passion for Pinot Noir, and the project to develop Escarpment Vineyard began. Collectively all four directors bring to Escarpment a world of experience, skill and understanding to the nurturing and making of fine, deliciously sublime wine.

In the search for the perfect vineyard site, Larry and Sue kept coming back to the Martinborough area, an area they knew intimately and which they were convinced offered the rich mix of elements required to grow and make fine New World wines, in particular Pinot Noir.

Escarpment Vineyard is planted on alluvial gravel terraces at the base of the Aorangi Ranges, the very hills made famous by the legendary Polynesian voyager who, according to Maori legend, discovered New Zealand. Kupe left his three canoes, Nga Waka, on top of the range, giving rise to the now familiarlandmark of the district, the three flat-topped hills on top of the range, which resemble unturned canoes. This warrior and his story provide inspiration for Escarpment Vineyard’s distinctive brand and logo, and for Larry and his winemaking team.
