Escarpment Martinborough Pinot Blanc 2015

Pinot Blanc from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 22-Nov-2016
Bright, even straw-yellow colour with light golden hues at the heart, paler edged. The nose is tightly bound with intense and concentrated, piquant aromas of yellow plums melded with yellow stonefruits and savoury nutty elements, unfolding floral and mineral notes. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate possesses sweet and plush flavours of yellow plums entwined with savoury yellow stonefruits and nutty notes. The fruit richness is enlivened by fresh, lacy acidity, and balanced by fine, dry, grainy phenolic textures that provide structure and line, carrying the wine to a positively weighted, thirst-quenching finish. This is a rich, yellow plum and savoury stonefruited, nutty, dry Pinot Blanc with fresh acidity and positive thirst-quenching structure. Match with seafood and most white meat dishes over the next 4+ years. The sixth release of a Pinot Blanc from the Te Muna Road vineyard. Fully barrel-fermented, partially on skins for 10 days to 13.8% alc. and 0.57 g/L RS. 18.0/20 Nov 2016 RRP $29.00
