Escarpment Wines

Martinborough Pinot Noir 2017

Mid crimson in colour. Earthy smoky notes with more forest floor than red fruit notes. These earthy notes come through on the palate finishing with a slight astringency. Good structure but requires a more red fruited presence on the palate I feel. A well credentialed producer from Martinborough better known for their high quality individual Cuvées like Kupe. Long time wine maker is Australian Larry McKenna. Footnote: Just discovered that Escarpment is now owned by Torbreck Vintners (South Australia). — a year ago

A producer I’m not super familiar with.!Feel like an Australian deep-dive will be necessary in my life one of these days. How Shiraz-y do you find it? As opposed to Syrah. I may be asking as I just came from a southern Rhône tasting and find it interesting how different Syrah can show up even within one region…

I’m surprised you haven’t seen Torbreck around, its easy to find especially the Wood cutter’s. Nothing like a Rhone, at least the ones I’ve had. Not a fruit bomb like some other inexpensive Aussi wines. Not the funk you find from Washington Syrahs either, nice balance like a good Paso Syrah. I prefer the Descendant with age on it.

Sounds good to me. I guess I don’t go after Aussie wines/cross paths with them so much as others I suppose 🤔
