Palate Profile

Rockburn's minimal handling approach delivers a pure Central Otago expression, An expressive nose and deeply- fruited palate display vibrant notes of succulent cherry, rich mocha and silky tannins, signing off with a very long finish. Brilliant consistency and a remarkable pedigree.

"Taking fruit from their Parkburn and Gibbston sites, with minimal handling, aiming for what makes up that classic Central Otago Pinot expression. A vibrant nose showing dark cherry, damson, rosehip, thyme and lilac florals. Rich and concentrated dark fruit with a delightful savoury element too – tapenade, espresso bean and mushroom. Tannin is supple, fine and tight, providing an excellent foil to that juicy, lush fruit. Balanced acidity gives drive and the wine flows beautifully across the palate. Warm spices punctuate the long, opulent finish. A treat, once again".  95 Points - Wine Folio, David Walker Bell (May '22)

Critic Awards

Gorgeously composed and stylish, showing sweet cherry, green olive, warm mushroom and fragrant spice aromas, it's concentrated on the palate offering excellent fruit purity and silky flow. Wonderfully framed by fine supple tannins, finishing impressively long and refined.

Delicately aromatic pinot noir with floral/violet, black cherry, black-fleshed plum and bramble flavours. It’s fresh and vibrant, with purity and a crisp, dry finish. A classic Central Otago pinot noir from a favourable vintage.

Matured for 10 months in French oak casks (33% new), it is a bright ruby, highly approachable wine, with deep, youthful cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing excellent complexity and harmony.
