Te Rehua is the most full bodied, tannic and intense of all Escarpment's single vineyard Pinot Noirs. Its higher tannins reflect the vineyard site and winemaker Tim Bourne has pulled back the oak particularly here to 30% new oak with the balance being one to two year old barrels. Dark black cherry flavours define the style of this wine with its powerful spicy notes also being in the darker flavour spectrum. 

Fermented with wild yeasts, it was bottled unfined and unfiltered.

A great wine for the cellar. 

Te Rehua is made from hand harvested grapes grown on the Barton Vineyard, Huangarua Road in Martinborough. This is a full bodied style of Pinot Noir made from grapes fermented using indigenous yeasts in traditional wooden cuvees, which were hand plunged every 12 hours, with a total vat time of 22 days. The finished wine was matured for 18 months in French oak barriques, 40% new. It was fined to protect the flavours and aid brightness in the glass but it was bottled without filtration, promoting soft mouth feel and texture.
