Bottle Description

The partners of Escarpment Vineyard are proud to release the eighth vintage of their Kupe Chardonnay. Grown on the Martinborough Terraces’ at the Te Muna Road site where free draining alluvial gravels have yielded the complex mineral flavours we expect. It was barrel fermented using indigenous yeast in 20% new oak and aged on fermentation lees for 10 months. Showing ripe but restrained fruit, intelligent use of oak and a flinty mineral backbone. It will age gracefully for up to 10 years and compliment most seafood or entrée dishes. Robert Parker - 94 points - Drink Date: 2018 - 2023 - "The 2015 Kupe Chardonnay is more tightly knit than the regular bottling, with at least a couple more years of aging potential. Toasted hazelnuts provide an elegant counterbalance to the grapefruity aromas and flavors, while minor notes of grilled white peach, pineapple and baking spices bring complexity, particularly on the long, crisp finish. It's nice to see Larry McKenna's white wines reaching similar heights as his Pinot Noirs."
