    Escarpment Chardonnay 2020

    Winery: Escarpment wines
    Country: New Zealand
    Region:  Wairarapa Martinborough
    Varietal: Chardonnay
    Type: White
    Body: Light medium

    The Escarpment Chardonnay is made 100% from Wairarapa fruit in what can be considered a warm season. It is an accurate reflection of the district’s unique terroir. The summer allowed a normal crop load to ripen slowly, producing powerful opulent flavours and a flinty mineral backbone which combine beautifully with barrel fermentation, to create Burgundian inspired Chardonnay.

    Aged in 20% new oak for 11 months a delightful soft texture has developed in the Escarpment Chardonnay resulting in a long commanding finish. Completed malolactic fermentation and lees stirring has enhanced the texture, complexity and mouth feel allowing the Escarpment Chardonnay to match most entrée dishes and seafood. It is an accessible wine which can be enjoyed in its youth or allow to age gracefully.
