THE BRIEF
  • THE BRIEF
  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • EXPERT REVIEWS
  • Grasshopper Rock is one of the world's southern most vineyards, established in 2003 and dedicated exclusively to Pinot noir. Grasshopper Rock is grown, made and bottled in Central Otago, from Pinot noir grapes, sourced exclusively from their 7.8ha Earnscleugh vineyard.

    Their wine is consistently well-received year after year, with the 2016 vintage being awarded 96 points at the Decanter Asia Wine Awards, and a Blue Gold Medal in the Sydney International Wine Competition.

  • WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Bright ruby, with a richly perfumed bouquet, it is mouthfilling, with concentrated cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, complex and savoury. Already delicious, it's also well worth cellaring.

    DECANTER ASIA WINE AWARDS 2018


    An intensely juicy fruit core of black cherry and plum with lifted exotic spice and an earthy undertone. Velvety tannins and vibrant acidity with a mineral soy finish. Lengthy and moreish.'

    BOB CAMPBELL MW - THE REAL REVIEW


    Delicately-scented pinot noir with purity and power. It's a good example of the fine, tight and often miner-laced styles found in the Alexandra Basin. An elegant wine that is a confident expression of place.'

    RAYMOND CHAN


    Dark, deep ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is full and softly voluminous with bright and vibrant primary aromas of dark-red cherry and dark plum fruit entwined with violet florals and subtle notes of dark herbs. This combines youthful richness, ripeness and fragrance. Medium-bodied, the palate is bright, juicy, sweetly rich with vibrant and lively aromatic fruit flavours of dark-red berry fruit, with nuances of black fruits and dark-red plums, layered with subtle notes of violet florals and hints of thyme herb. The palate has mouthfilling fruit supported by supple tannin extraction, lending a rounded structure, with soft, balanced acidity. This has a fine core with excellent linearity, and the wine carries to long and sweet-fruited finish unveiling liquorice elements. This is a rich, plush, juicy and vibrant Pinot Noir with succulent dark berry and plum flavours with violet florals on a supple palate with a fine heart.' 19/20 Points
