Decanter ‘Top 20 NZ Pinot Noirs’
Wine writer Anne Krebiehl MW has chosen her top 20 New Zealand Pinot Noirs in this months’ edition of Decanter magazine. 2014 Kiwa from Escarpment has made it into her final selection, receiving 94 pts and the following note: A synthesis of white pepper and red cherry with a lovely, salty soy edge. On the palate this is full, fluid and a little edgy – but elegant. It retains a spiciness throughout and does not carry an ounce of fat. The pepper and freshness just linger.
