Rockburn - Pinot Noir 2012Pinot Noir
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.
