Boutique winemaking affords great advantages, every vine can be uniquely husbanded, quality control is maximised, each barrel can be individually sampled and assembled into the perfect cuvee. Engineering types are innately suited to such viticulture. Colin Best embarked upon his sabbatical to the great vineyards of Burgundy's Cote d'Or. He returned to plant Pinot Noir on a craggy half hectare near Lobethal in the Adelaide Hills. An ancient masonry wool mill was outfitted for winemaking and Leabrook Estate was born. This is an aesthetic range of meticulously crafted, limited vintages, fashioned for the aficianado of bespoke, small batch, little vineyard wines... The lobethal libations of leabrook»
David Wynn introduced cardboard wine casks, flagons and the Airlesflo wine tap to the nation. He is best remembered for re packaging the Coonawarra estate which bears his name and which endures as one of Australia's icon brands. Wynn was a master of his craft and studied oenology at the world renowned Magill wineworks. An astute marketer and talented blender, he also had a keen eye for the land, investing in the ancient John Riddoch fruit colony and planting vines on a challenging site, high atop the lofty latitudes of Valley Eden. Mountadam Vineyards were built from the ground up, with a view to crafting a limited range of well structured, weighty wines, defined by fuller palates and saline, mineral savouryness. The legacy of Eden Valley vineyards planted by Wynn in the 1960s & 1970s, incorporating significant old rootstock and extinct European clones, remains a bespoke choice for adherents of the abstruse, old guard in Australian..

Escarpment Artisan Pinot Gris CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Gris Grigio Martinborough New Zealand
Mature Pinot Gris vines planted to alluvial gravel soils on Martinborough Terrace allow grapes to ripen wonderfully, yielding parcels of powerful, opulent fruit which are treated to barrel fermentation techniques for the creation of a rich, French inspired Pinot Gris. A faithful expression of Martinborough's unique terrior, the touch of residual sugar has enhanced the distinct fruit characters for which Pinot Gris is so renowned. Complete malolactic and lees stirring has enhanced the texture and mouthfeel allowing the juicy palate to match most entree dishes.

Escarpment aim to produce the very best of tomorrow's definitive new world wines. Complexity, texture and structure are key words and motivators. Escarpment was established in 1999 as a joint business venture between Village Roadshow's Robert and Mem Kirby with Larry and Sue McKenna. Situated just 5 kilometres east of Martinborough village, twenty four hectares of distinctive alluvial gravel, terraced land stretches out along the banks of the Huangarua River. Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris represent a substantial proportion of the white grape selection. While the majority of these grapes are grown on site, Escarpment also sources components of Pinot Gris from the local Station Bush property.
Light apricot hue. Bouquet of florals, nuttyness and ripe, complex fruit. A palate of ripe pears and white nectarine, long, textural and delightfully soft texture before a lingering and memorable, commanding finish. The drying French, adults only styling enhances the generosity of flavour and textural richness, a fine match to delicately prepared white flesh fishes.
