Mr Pinot does blanc

Escarpment Pinot Blanc 2016, Martinborough, NZD $29

Creamy-textured pinot blanc with vanilla, pepper and gently spicy flavours. An appealing wine in a restrained and rather elegant style. Dry, but not austere, with support from gentle acidity and very fine tannins. Good food wine – great with scallops. (Screwcap)
