96 points “The refined power is striking.” – James Suckling

95 points “This is a spicy and pristine wine that's approachable now but is also very cellar worthy.” – Wine Enthusiast

We like to sit on this wine for a little while before releasing it because most of gets consumed at a criminally young age. Featured in Wine Enthusiast’s Top 100 wines of 2019 Escarpment’s Kiwa Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017 is classic Martinborough. It comes from the 30-year-old vines grown on the Cleland Vineyard.

As Master of Wine Peter Richards says: “Escarpment has long done a fine line in savoury understated nuanced Pinot Noir.” And this is exactly that. Inspired by Burgundy but leveraging Martinborough’s unique terroir Escarpment Kiwa is fermented using indigenous yeasts and matured in French oak for 18 months. Perfumed spicy and earth it’s a silky melange of red cherries summer berries plums pomegranate tobacco herbes de Provence savoury spices and crushed rocks. Will drink beautifully up to 2030 maybe even beyond.

This New Zealand producer is fast developing a cult following among fine wine connoisseurs and it’s not hard to see why when you pour this beauty. Owned by Larry and Sue McKenna and Robert and Mem Kirby Escarpment takes its name from the limestone ridge that runs through Burgundy. Martinborough has always displayed a certain Burgundian elegance with New Zealand wine expert Sam Kim saying that this estate’s wines “could be mistaken for a top-flight Burgundy”. Raymond Chan who sadly passed away in 2019 was one of New Zealand’s most respected wine critics. He was always a huge fan of Escarpment awarding it Winery of the Year in 2015.
