Escarpment Pahi is one of the four wines of Insight Series which was created by Larry McKenna with the desire to craft a Pinot Noir that was purely dedicated to expressing the unique vineyard characteristics, known as terroir, of the Martinborough Terraces.
This wine has a particular style; soft, ripe, pure fruit expressions in an exceedingly New World Pinot Noir.
Made with traditional methods like in Burgundy. Fermented using indigenous yeasts in traditional wood cuvees, matured 18 months in 30% new French oak barriques and fined using egg whites to protect fruity flavours and softening the mouthfeel and texture. Very limited, highly regarded beautiful wine.
