The Escarpment Vineyard, Martinborough, New Zealand promises some of the very best of tomorrow's definitive New World Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay. With respected winemaker Larry McKenna applying his distinctive skill to what he does best - making premium wine - the result is some of NZ's most layered, flavoursome and complex wines.

Dense, intense and quite powerful pinot noir, with a core of sweet fruit balanced by moderately rustic tannins to give a drying and lengthy finish. Dark fruits with savoury, dried herb characters adding extra complexity. An heroic pinot noir that needs time to reveal its true potential. Drink 2017 to 2026; Rated: 96 Points; Bob Campbell MW

Kupe comes from Escarpments home turf over on Te Muna Road. Close planted in 1999. 50% new oak. 70% whole bunch. Dark cherry, aniseed, earth, spicy cinnamon oak on show, plenty of spice. Medium bodied, but firmly tannic, with a black tea character, ‘minerality’ aplenty, ginger biscuit, intense and driving, with serious length leaving a fan of tannin in its wake. Needs at least three years in bottle. Serious stuff. Tasted: May17; Alcohol: 13.5%; Price: $90; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2020-2030+; Rated: 95+ Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
