DESCRIPTION
  • Rockburn takes its name from the rugged, rock-strewn, burn-scarred landscape of Central Otago. The region is renowned for its stunning scenery of rugged mountains and picturesque lakes.

    They produce premium wines of intense varietal characteristics in Central Otago, the world’s most southerly grape-growing region. Central Otago, at 45º south, has a climate similar to Burgundy, France, the great Pinot Noir producing region of the world.

    This medium-sweet Riesling, inspired by the Spätlese wines of Germany, is produced from Rockburn's Parkburn (Cromwell Basin) Vineyard.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Fermented in stainless steel at ~15 deg.C to retain aromatics and finesse. Stopped at its point of sugar/acid balance then racked, stabilised, filtered and bottled. 56g/L residual sugar.

    TASTING NOTES

    Apricots and mandarin juice dominate the nose of this wine in its youth, and the palate is filled with lively notes of tangerine and lime. The immaculately balanced rich sweetness and fine acidity are brought to completion by a very long and cleansing finish. Easily enjoyed as an aperitif, or with long lunches, cheese, white meat or delicate seafood dishes, this wine will continue to evolve over the next decade.

  • REVIEWS

    'Lush, ripe medium/sweet Riesling with apricot, orange zest/citrus and chalky mineral flavours. Sweetness is underpinned by fine acidity which prevents any suggestion of cloying. Youthful, vibrant wine that has the potential to develop well, revealing a more complex and mellower alternative.'

    'Very fragrant, lime and citrus aromas, the palate intense and juicy with half-trocken level of sweetness and clean acidity. Tangy, zesty, very alive and delicious.'
    93 Points - Huon Hooke, The Real Review

    'Good lime-driven intensity. Notes of orange and stone fruits too. Plenty of zip and ample accessibility, the latter helped along by the fruit sweetness. It finishes particularly well, and is a particularly enjoyable wine to drink.'
