Te Rehua is one of the four wines of Escarpment’s 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, collectively known as terroir, of the Martinborough Terraces. 23 years-old vines grown in a unique sheltered site of Te Rehua, 1.1 ha only, gives the wine complexity with black cherry/plum fruit flavours.
Made with traditional methods. 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 wines.
