Escarpment Te Rehua Pinot Noir 2015
Scarlet in colour. Te Rehua exhibits fruit flavours over a firm tannin structure and controlled oak. A classic example of new world Pinot Noir, Te Rehua offers the complexity derived from a unique vineyard site, combined with vibrant fruit flavours, long and lingering. A wonderful counterpart to all game and flavourful cuisine.
The Wine Front – Pinot Noir is, I think, the grape where personal taste and foibles come into play the most. This is my favourite of the five 2015 Pinot releases from Escarpment. Grown on the Barton Vineyard, Haungarua Road, Martinborough. The vineyard is 23 years old. Longest time on skins here, with a total vat time of 23 days. 30% new oak. 65% whole bunch. Here’s a wine with a bit of the old ‘X-Factor’. Bold perfume of flowers and dried herbs, liquorice and dark fruit, brandy snaps, lavish spice. Medium bodied, almost an airy feel in the mouth, but grounded by firm black tea tannin and minerality, beautiful clear acidity, and a long perfumed finish.
In a mixed or straight case: $66.49
