Escarpment, Pinot Noir, Martinborough, New Zealand
A Pinot in the distinctive Escarpment style showing complexity, attractive texture and the perfect mix of black and red berries.
Our respect for the land begins with respect for its history. Overlooking the vineyard are the Aorangi Ranges, the very hills made famous by Kupe the great Polynesian voyager who discovered New Zealand, according to Maori legend. Kupe left his three canoes, Nga Waka, on top of the range, giving rise to the now familiar landmark of the district, the “Nga Waka-o-Kupe” or three flat-topped hills on top of the range, which resemble upturned canoes.
