Escarpment Kupe Pinot Noir, Martinborough 2011 $80

The colour is amazingly deep and purple-red in hue; the aromas show concentrated ripe-cherry and foresty hints, while it’s full-bodied and powerful on the palate. Profound flavour and lots of super-fine tannin. Surprising presence, texture, grip and length. Great potential. Now to 2025. 13.5 per cent alcohol. 96/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: grilled lamb fillets
