Cracka Review

Try saying Wairarapa five times after you’ve sunk a bottle of this seriously sexy Chardonnay. Because that’s the Kiwi region the fruit comes from and Escarpment are a winery to watch. The wine is obviously inspired by the old world but has its heart and soul in the new. It’s rich, layered and textured with minerals and shows bold flavours of stone fruit. Stirring in barrel has lent complexity and character and it ends with tight, natural acids.

Winemaker's Notes

100% grown from Escarpment’s Te Muna Road site in what can be considered a long cool season. The summer allowed fruit to ripen slowly, producing powerful opulent flavours and a flinty mineral backbone which combine beautifully with barrel fermentation to create Burgundian inspired Chardonnay.

Palate: Flavours are reminiscent of white stone fruit with delightful soft texture ensuring a long commanding finish.
Food Matching: Match most entrée dishes and kaimoana.
