This Pinot Gris features ripe peach, nectarine and Nashi pear aromas, heralding a vibrantly fruity off-dry palate.

This combined with a very long, zesty finish complements rich or light seafood meals or most Asian-spiced cuisine, though its extraordinary versatility should be experienced over a wide range of dishes.

This wine is drinking very well now and is expected to mellow over the next 3-4 years.

An excellent season compared to the rest of the country, good yields off of their own blocks and low disease pressure

Producer Information

Rockburn produces premium wines of intense varietal characteristics in Central Otago, the world's most southerly grape-growing region. Central Otago, at 45Deg south, has a climate similar to Burgundy, France, the great Pinot Noir producing region of the world.
Central Otago has a semi-continental climate and experiences greater daily and seasonal extremes of temperature unknown elsewhere in New Zealand. The area's unique soil types have a marked influence on vine growth, the flavours of the grapes and the resulting wine.
Handpicked grapes from the Parkburn and Gibbston Valley Back Road Vineyards reflect Rockburn's unique terroir. The resulting wines fully express the complex subtleties available only in New Zealand's one true continental climate.
