92 Parker Punkte für den Escarpment Pinot Noir 2015 MartinboroughEscarpment's blended 2015 Pinot Noir represents a solid introduction to the style of founder Larry McKenna. It's earthy and savory but with a deep core of black cherry fruit. It seems a bit gentler than previous vintages, but it's still medium to full-bodied, with ample structure to support a decade or more of development. Ripe plum, cola and chocolate notes emerge on the lengthy finish.


94 Punkte James Suckling für den Escarpment Pinot Noir 2015 MartinboroughA lower cropping season with perfect ripening conditions has delivered a polished and seamless Escarpment pinot noir with plenty of red and darker cherry fruit aromas and flavors, some bracken and undergrowth, as well as rose-like florals and woody aromas. The palate has taut and tangy redder cherry fruits, cast against an energetic, fleshy and very composed array of tannins. A terrific wine.”



93 Punkte Winespectator für den Escarpment Pinot Noir 2015 Martinborough“Intense, fragrant and expressive, with black cherry and dried plum notes that mingle with lavender, black tea and clove accents. A hint of dried porcino lingers on the finish. The tannins aren't shy, providing a solid backbone for the flavors.”

97 Punkte James Suckling für den Escarpment Pinot Noir Te Rehua 2015 Martinborough“A dark and brooding pinot noir with big, swarthy tannins. Dark cherries and dark violet-like florals, toasted spices and dark herbal notes, too. The palate has a smooth shell-like outer, opening to powerful, succulent tannins that really command. A concentrated Te Rehua, this is one of the best to date.”



(Wine Front, 95/100)
“Here’s a wine with a bit of the old ‘X-Factor’. Bold perfume of flowers and dried herbs, liquorice and dark fruit, brandy snaps, lavish spice. Medium bodied, almost an airy feel in the mouth, but grounded by firm black tea tannin and minerality, beautiful clear acidity, and a long perfumed finish.”

96 Punkte James Suckling für den Pinot Noir Kiwa 2015 EscarpmentJames Suckling
“The sweet and fragrant spices and perfumed pinot noir fruits, a hallmark of this vineyard, are alluring and the depth that follows makes for an engaging, convincing pinot noir. The palate has succulent, attractive bright red cherry fruit aromas and the palate has a very focused, powerful yet elegant feel, and a feathery and ethereal finish.”


94 Punkte Winespectator für den Escarpment Pinot Noir Kiwa 2015 Martinborough“Dusty white pepper and rose petal notes are aromatic, leaping out of the glass to complement the dense core of mineral-laced dark fruit flavors, with plenty of anise and nutmeg details. The intensity gains momentum on the finish, which is expressive and generous.”




“Scented, enticing pinot noir with a mix of floral, cherry and berry flavours and a suggestion of spice all nicely restrained by fine, drying tannins. A little closed right now but showing good development potential.”
(Bob Campbell, 95/100)


“Spicy, cherry and red berry, dusting of sweet cinnamon oak, a little herb and earthiness, but a brighter expression of Martinborough here. Medium bodied, firm almost sappy acidity, grainy lightly drying sandy tannin, plenty of crunch and energy, and a bright strawberried finish of good length, with a slight herbal bitterness. Excellent now, and better again with a couple more years in bottle.”

Escarpment Kupe Pinot Noir 2015 Martinboroughvon James Suckling:

The top dog is in impressive shape in this perfect harvest, showing plenty of charismatic perfume, spices and ripe cherry fruits, as well as earthy nuances. The palate has a wealth of ripeness. This is an extremely luscious wine, bathed in ripe darker cherry and plum fruit flavors with a wall of plush velvety tannins delivering a long, commanding but caressing palate. Brilliant. Drink now and for some years to come. Screw cap.

96 Punkte Winespectator für den Escarpment Kupe Pinot Noir 2015 Martinborough“This powerful wine is tightly wound yet very expressive, with plenty of torque to the plum and blood orange flavors at the core, slowly revealing details of cedar, tobacco, cumin seed, rosemary and black tea. Everything sings in harmony on the long finish.”





96 Punkte von Bob Campbell:
“Dense, intense and quite powerful pinot noir, with a core of sweet fruit balanced by moderately rustic tannins to give a drying and lengthy finish. Dark fruits with savoury, dried herb characters adding extra complexity. An heroic pinot noir that needs time to reveal its true potential.”

95+ Punkte von Wine Front:
“Kupe comes from Escarpments home turf over on Te Muna Road. Close planted in 1999. 50% new oak. 70% whole bunch. Dark cherry, aniseed, earth, spicy cinnamon oak on show, plenty of spice. Medium bodied, but firmly tannic, with a black tea character, ‘minerality’ aplenty, ginger biscuit, intense and driving, with serious length leaving a fan of tannin in its wake. Needs at least three years in bottle. Serious stuff.”

19,5 Punkte von Raymond Chan:
“This is a succulently rich and vibrant, black-fruited Pinot Noir with layers of spice, oak, dark herbs and whole cluster complexities on a very fine-grained, fresh palate. Abel clone fruit from the Escarpment Te Muna Road vineyard, close-planted in 1999, indigenous yeast fermented with 70% whole bunches.”
