This has power and drive and the concentrated core carries to a long, nutty finish.Raymond Chan
Escarpment's single vineyard Kupe Chardonnay is grown on the Martinborough Terraces’ free-draining alluvial gravel soils.
Showing ripe but restrained fruit, intelligent use of oak and a flinty mineral backbone Kupe Chardonnay is at the pinnacle of the style in New Zealand.
TIME IN OAK
Total: 85 Free: 10
The 2014 season was an ideal, typical Martinborough summer and gave perfectly ripe fruit.
Hand harvested and whole bunch pressed, the wine was barrel fermented using indigenous yeast in 20% new oak and aged on its fermentation lees for 10 months before bottling.
