Escarpment The Edge Pinot Noir Martinborough 2015 – $$
A red wine for the end of my working week, as rain and wind sweeps the streets outside and sends pedestrians scurrying…
Deep blushing pink carmine colour. 13.5% alc.
Ripe red berry aromas, tending jammy.
Sweet in the mouth, very ripe, not much nuance. Plenty of fruit flavour and intensity – a luscious style of pinot. A bit too simple & direct for my taste. accessible it may be, but not interesting at all. Little tannin on palate, and with new oak apparent, this is not the cool-climate damsel that I prefer… 84 points.
