Sadly this will be Escarpment’s last Pahi from this site. A 30 year relationship with this vineyard ended with the passing of Mr Jack McCreanor, one of nature’s gentlemen.

This wine was grown on the Pahi Vineyard Princess Street, Martinborough from 28 year old vines. A combination of slightly heavier soils and a blend of clones, 10/5, Abel and Clone 5 always rewards us with this particular style; soft, ripe, pure fruit expressions in an exceedingly New World Pinot Noir.

It was open topped fermented using indigenous yeasts in traditional wooden cuvees, hand plunged every 12 hours, with a total vat time of 17 days. After pressing it was matured in 30% new French oak barriques for 18 months.

It was bottled without fining or filtration to protect the flavours and promote a soft mouth feel and balance. It will continue to develop for up to 10 years and will always be a wonderful counterpart to any game food.

Sadly this will be Escarpment’s last Pahi from this site. A 30 year relationship with this vineyard ended with the passing of Mr Jack McCreanor, one of nature’s gentlemen.
