The Revival of Pahi

The Revival of Pahi

After years of producing our Pahi Single Vineyard Pinot Noir with grapes grown on a town block, the land was sold, which brought the end of the Pahi label. Or so we thought.

Tasting notes and wine samples of the latest Escarpment vintages before bottling.

Vintage 2019 Barrel Tasting

Yesterday was a crucial day at Escarpment: we tasted more than 30 different barrel wines blind, to assess the quality of the vintage, which helps Larry and and myself understand this very challenging but special year, and adjust our winemaking decisions accordingly.

The Martinborough district has a wealth of top-flight Pinot Noir producers, and what is particularly gratifying is that they all have their own take on what makes quality.
