Escarpment Single Vineyard Pinot Noirs - Including Kiwa, Te Rehua, Pahia and Kupe 2008s

Larry McKenna is a legend in Martinborough, indeed throughout New Zealand, the man who steered Martinborough Vineyards to international acclaim. Established in 1999, Escarpment's vineyards are located upon the alluvial loams in the "Te Muna" area that are blessed with good drainage and a cool summer microclimate. This is an impressive array of wines though I would prefer less extraction apropos the Pinot Noirs. Larry also introduced his range of single vineyard wines that will debut with the 2006 vintage and like Burgundy, there were tangible differences in character between these intense, full-bodied, still primal wines.  DECANTER MAGAZINE 2010

Escarpement founder/winemaker Larry McKenna is regarded as 'Mr Pinot Noir' in New Zealand, recognising his long and passionate affair with the variety. He builds power, complexity and longevity into his wines to such a degree that he is the envy of many winemakers. McKenna left Martinborough Vineyards nearly a decade ago to develop his own vineyard and winery in nearby Te Muna where he continues to make great Pinot Noir. NEAL MARTIN, www.erobertparker.com
