Pinot Blanc 2015, Escarpment

£11.99 per bottle

About this wine

Escarpment Vineyard is excited to be able to release the sixth Single Vineyard Pinot Blanc from its Te Muna Road Vineyard.  A barrel fermented dry style (<2g/l sugar) was aged for 11 months prior to bottling. The wine was partially fermented on skins for 10 days prior to going to barrel adding mouthfeel and texture. It will certainly create some interesting wine/food pairings. Can be enjoyed whilst young but this wine will age gracefully for at least 5 years.

In its native Alsace it creates exceptional wines. It can be handled the same way as Chardonnay with oak integration or more delicately, to accentuate the varietal’s fine acidity and fruit balance."
