Escarpment's The Edge Pinot Noir, grown on the alluvial gravel terraces for which the region of Martinborough has become famous.

The season was exceptionally warm allowing high quality, fully ripe fruit to be harvested early with brilliant ripe cherry, red fruit flavours. A full bodied style with great backbone and a long lingering finish.

The fruit was hand harvested and destemmed prior to fermentation in open-topped traditional wooden cuves. Hand plunged every 12 hours, the wine spent a total of 21 days in vat. After malolactic fermentation, it was transferred to 20% old French oak for aging.
