“Gris” Pinot Gris 2019 Escarpment

£16.75 per bottle

About this wine

The 2019 Escarpment ‘Gris’ Pinot Gris Grown on the alluvial gravel soils of the now famous Martinborough Terrace. A classic warm dry summer allowed a small crop 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.  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.

Food pairing: A great aperitif style wine or match with most entrée dishes.

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

Alcohol: 14% ABV
