Delicious from the start, this fragrant, sweet-fruited, very harmonious red was grown principally at Parkburn, in the Cromwell Basin, with a small component (12%) from Gibbston. Deep ruby, it is scented, full-bodied, vibrantly fruity and supple, with rich cherry, plum and spice flavours, seasoned with French oak (33% new), and a finely poised, long finish.
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.
SAM KIM - WINE ORBIT
Sweetly fruited and gorgeously complex, the wine shows ripe plum, dark cherry, vanilla, subtle spice, olive and cedar characters on the nose. The palate is equally impressive, displaying excellent concentration and intensity. It's soothing and comforting with seductive flavours and rich texture, finishing fabulously long and velvety.
BOB CAMPBELL MW - THE REAL REVIEW
Delicately-scented pinot noir with floral, violet, cherry, spice, anise and subtle savoury and dried herb flavours. An elegant, supple wine with a structure of fine tannins that suggests good cellaring potential.
