Kupe by Escarpment Martinborough Pinot Noir

Planted at three times the density of most NZ vines, this is the best corner of Escarpment’s estate vineyard. Just one kilogram of fruit per vine produces incredible complexity and understated density. Black olives, coal, liquorice, exotic spice and black berries are all present here, drawn out by vibrant, taut acid structure and finely poised, firm, yet silky tannins. Give it time to unravel. $65 at Cracka.
