Rockburn Pinot Noir 

Rockburn started as the hobby of Richard Bunton in 1991. He planted a few hectares of vineyard in the then pretty much unknown area of Central Otago. In 2005, Malcolm Francis the winemaker, arrived from Felton Road where his skills immediately reaped the rewards when he won the Elite Gold Medal. This is a very exciting new arrival on the world Pinot Noir stage.

Vinification
Grapes are handpicked from Rockburn's two vineyards in Gibbston Valley and Parkburn. The juice undergoes cold maceration and fermentation followed by 10 months ageing in new and old French oak.

Viticulture

Tasting Note
Deeply fruited with delicate floral tones enhanced by nuances of liquorice root, and supple, silky tannins leading into a long spicy finish. As always this wine shows classic Rockburn elegance, integrity and balance
