5 Stars & 18.5/20 Raymond Chan, March 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"​Brilliant light straw-yellow colour with pale green-gold hues, light on the rim. The nose is fresh with elegantly proportioned aromas of savoury white stonefruits, delicate nuances of herbs, subtle thirst-quenching minerals and suggestions of oxidative complexities. The aromatics are pure and focussed. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has lively and succulent flavours of white stonefruits with white floral elements and steely, mouthwatering minerals. The mouthfeel has vibrancy and vitality with crisp acidity, the wine flowing a light-textured phenolic line. This has excellent energy and tension, and the wine carries to a long and sustained finish of stonefruits and apples. This is a vibrant, lively and succulently juicy dry Pinot Blanc with white stonefruit, floral and mineral flavours on a focussed palate with fine textures and tension. Serve as an aperitif and with seafood over the next 3+ years. The sixth Pinot Blanc release from Escarpment. Fruit from the company’s Te Muna Road vineyard, given 12 hours skin contact and fully barrel-fermented to 13.4% alc. and <1 g/L RS, the wine aged 11 months in seasoned oak."
93/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, June 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Creamy-textured pinot blanc with vanilla, pepper and gently spicy flavours. An appealing wine in a restrained and rather elegant style. Dry, but not austere, with support from gentle acidity and very fine tannins. Good food wine – great with scallops."
