Escarpment’s Artisan range is a commitment to the future expansion of our key varieties. Exploring boundaries has always been part of our philosophy and is exhibited in our winemaking approach. 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 us 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 creating a great aperitif style or allowing it to match most entrée dishes. An excellent 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.
