Escarpment GRIS Pinot Gris 2021

 

96 Points

Ripe, opulent, exuberant, complex, and vinous on the nose with alluring aromas of brown pear, apple strudel, beeswax, popcorn, cinnamon and baking spice. A big, broad, weighty, structural wine with impressive textural elements and complex barrel influence. Still very youthful, this wine has hidden depth and unfolds in the glass to show layers of flavour. A benchmark NZ, dry Pinot Gris.

 

Escarpment BLANC Pinot Blanc 2021

94 Points

Complex, mealy wine with a lifted perfume showing green pear, banana and peach kernel fruit with a complex vanilla pod and cinnamon wine-making influence. Dry and broad with the classic, rich, palate structure of Pinot Blanc balanced by soft acidity, and boasting a long, tasty finish. Impressive, very approachable, a delicious food wine.
