"Perfume, elegant fruit flavours, and soft ripe tannins are all hallmarks of this exceptional Pinot Noir. Perfect weather in Martinborough during flowering in December 2012 resulted in an ideal crop which did not require thinning. At the time I said I'd waited 30 years for this vintage! Inspired by the classic wines of Burgundy, this Pinot Noir is a tribute to Martinborough's unique terroir. It will cellar gracefully for up to 10 years." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
Escarpment's Martinborough Pinot Noir is the ideal introduction to the winery's style, and to New Zealand's Martinborough region in general. Often overshadowed by bigger regions like Marlborough, Martinborough has been rediscovered recently as one of New Zealand's prime spots for Pinot Noir cultivation, with wineries like Craggy Range and Ata Rangi planting vineyards there. The 2013 Escarpment Pinot Noir is a joy to drink, with notes of blackcurrant and red cherry surrounded by spices – cloves, sage – all wrapped up in an elegant, medium-bodied package that invites just about any Pinot Noir fan to partake.
"A very complete wine that has a complex, rich nose with plenty of ripe-cherry and red-berry fruits, some distinct herbal threads, chocolate, flowers and deeply earthy notes. The palate has composure, structure and density, silky at the edges, carrying plenty of cherry and plum flavor. Great length, too: so well-balanced as to appear effortless. The best Escarpment estate-blend pinot to date. Drink in 2015." —James Suckling
