Professional Wine Reviews for Escarpment Pinot Noir Te Rehua 2013

Rated 97 by Decanter
The most brooding of the Escarpment pinot noirs. This has a dark, minerally nose with graphite and slate that builds into earth-crusted herbs, toasted nuts, dark chocolate and glac_ orange peel, not to mention wet earth and crushed violets. The complexity is deeply integrated. On the palate there's striking clarity and focus: The tannins are fine-tuned, super smooth and rippling with energy, driving long, smooth and clear dark cherry and plum flavors that run alongside and wash up through the finish. A classic rendition of pinot in the iron fist and velvet glove style. Drink in 2019. (Suckling)

Additional Information on Escarpment Pinot Noir Te Rehua 2013

Winery: Escarpment

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir translates as 'black pine' in French, and is named as such due to the extremely inky color of the fruits, which hang in bunches the shape of a pine cone. Wineries often struggle with Pinot Noir vines, as more than most red wine grape varietals, they fail in hot temperatures and are rather susceptible to various diseases which can be disastrous when hoping for a late harvest. Thanks to new technologies and methods for avoiding such problems, however, the Pinot Noir grape varietal has spread across the world to almost every major wine producing country. Why? Quite simply because this is considered to be one of the finest grape varietals one can cultivate, due to the fact that it can be used to produce a wide range of excellent wines full of interesting, fresh and fascinating flavors Their thin skins result in a fairly light-bodied wine, and the juices carry beautiful notes of summer fruits, currants and berries, and many, many more.

Country: New Zealand

New Zealand has consistently impressed over the past few decades, with many proclaiming this southern country as being the 'pearl' of the New World wine locations. One of the key attributes of New Zealand wines is their wonderful fruit-forward flavors, which make them a favorite with newcomers to wine, as they manage to be deliciously drinkable without posing many challenges. That isn't to say there is little complexity or interesting features to their wines, as one can easily discover through the fantastic range of wines available – from smoky and mineral rich Sauvignon Blancs, to juicy and plummy Pinot Noirs and the beautiful Bordeaux style wines sourced from the excellent Auckland region. New Zealand wineries clearly have a dedication to quality alongside quantity, and such zeal and expertise is quickly helping them become established as world leaders in regards to both domestic sales and exported wines.
