“Gris” Pinot Gris 2018 Escarpment

£15.60 per bottle

About this wine

The 2018 Escarpment ‘Gris’ Pinot Gris Grown on the alluvial gravel soils of the Martinborough Terrace during an amazing growing season for the district.  A classic warm dry summer allowed fruit to ripen perfectly producing opulent fruit flavours and great texture. Combined with barrel fermentation has allowed Escarpment to create Burgundian inspired Pinot Gris. Flavours are reminiscent of ripe pears and white stone fruit with delightful soft texture ensuring a long commanding finish. A dry style has enhanced the fruit flavours Pinot Gris is renowned for. Partial malolactic fermentation and lees stirring has improved the texture and mouth feel allowing it to match most entrée dishes. A great alternative to Chardonnay it has been inspired by the classical French approach to the variety. It is an accurate reflection of Martinborough’s unique terroir.

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

Thai food screams for Pinot Gris, especially those from New Zealand where the wines’ deeper, honeyed, citrus flavours seem to flow so well."
