Escarpment Over the Edge Pinot Noir 2009
The season was exceptionally warm allowing high quality, fully ripe fruit to be harvested early with brilliant ripe cherry/plum flavours. A full-bodied style with great backbone and a long lingering finish. An immediately accessible wine, which will improve over the next 2 years. Enjoy with full flavoured fish dishes, lamb or vegetarian dishes.
Palish medium red. Subtle aromas of cherry and spices with hints of meat and earth. Supple, round and quite ripe but retains its shape and maintains a light touch. Not particularly complex but distinctly likeable wine and an excellent pinot value, with good depth of fruit and a spicy sweetness on the back end.
