Escarpment Kiwa 2014
Bright ruby red, the bouquet has complexity with notes of black cherries and plum fruit. Lovely softness and texture in the mouth.
Pairs well with all game dishes and roast beef.
James Suckling - "A gently smoky and highly nuanced nose offers discreet yet complex sappy notes as well as a lighter stony and almost chalky edge. Beautifully ripe red and dark cherries grow and grow in the glass. The palate has a curvy, fleshy shape to it; it's really smooth and supple thanks to nut-ripe tannins. Hints of graphite-like savory flavours and bright dark cherry fruit power through the neatly framed, crisp finish. Best from 2018."
Burghound.com - "Like several of the wines in the range this displays a subtle note of herbal tea along with all-but-invisible hints of oak toast on the elegant, pure and beautifully layered aromas of plum, black cherry, raspberry and once again Asian-style tea scents. There is a gorgeous mouth feel to the beautifully textured, concentrated and intense medium weight flavors that coat the palate with juicy dry extract, all wrapped in a strikingly persistent, balanced and utterly delicious finale. This is a wonderfully stylish effort that is at once serious yet refined and it should reward longer-term keeping as the balance is so good that 20 years hence this beauty should still be alive and well. If you can find it, buy it."
