Dubbed by some wine critics as the ‘Prince of Pinot’ Larry McKenna has been making quality Pinot Noir from the Martinborough district since 1986 and has a raft of trophies to prove his title.
The Edge wines are 100% Martinborough fruit, harvested and then vinified at the Escarpment Vineyard by the experienced wine making team under Larry McKenna’s watchful eye.
While Martinborough can produce long lived wines of great structure, the alluvial terraces also lend themselves to wines that express ripe fruit flavours with a softness
of texture that is distinctive from other grape growing regions. Larry understands this and is making this small range of wines under The Edge label that capture this character but can be enjoyed in their relative youth. They are made without the use of oak and usually include small amounts of residual sugar. Both the Pinot Gris and the Pinot Noir are ideal for current vintage drinking and make great aperitifs. For this reason they are often found sold by the glass.
