The 2012 vintage yielded beautiful fruit from each of Rockburn's vineyards, which they have simply guided gently through to the bottle with minimal handling.

The estates 'hands-off' approach delivers a pure expression of Central Otago to your glass; an expressive nose and deeply fruited palate displaying vibrant notes of red cherry and mocha, and supple, lithe tannins leading into a very long finish.

As always this wine shows classic Rockburn elegance, integrity and balance. Enjoy with friends over the next 5-7 years.

Good yields allowed for selective picking of the very best fruit given the higher than usual 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.
