Chardonnay 2017, Escarpment

About this wine

The Escarpment Chardonnay 2017 is 100% grown from Escarpment’s Te Muna Road site in what can be considered a perfect, cool dry season. The summer allowed a smaller crop than usual to ripen slowly, producing powerful opulent flavours and a flinty mineral backbone which combine beautifully with barrel fermentation to create Burgundian inspired Chardonnay. Flavours are reminiscent of white stone fruit with delightful soft texture ensuring a long commanding finish. Partial malolactic fermentation and lees stirring has enhanced the texture, complexity and mouth feel allowing it to match most entrée dishes and seafood.  It is an accurate reflection of Martinborough’s unique terroir.

Ageing potential: Cellar for up to five years or more, successfully.

Very Limited Stock!

    string(513) "Possibly the most famous grape variety in the world, Chardonnay has found a home in pretty much every corner of the wine world. From crisp, flinty Chablis styles to full-bodied, oaky, rich Napa Valley Chardonnay it is a variety which has the ability to morph according to the climate or winemaking philosophy. It also has the capacity to produce amongst the greatest white wines in the world. Some praise indeed for this chameleon variety, the likes of which may only truly be matched by Riesling or Chenin Blanc."
