97 Points - DecanterAll killer no filler!... A luxurious wine with cashmere textured tannins, a racy acid bite and a long, intense, focused fruit finish. Superbly smooth.

How's it taste?

An expressive nose and deeply fruited palate displaying vibrant notes of red and black cherry, rich mocha and supple, silky tannins leading into a very long finish. As always this wine shows classic Rockburn elegance, integrity and balance.

How was it made?

The 2016 vintage yielded beautiful fruit from each of the Central Otago sites, which Rockburn have simply guided gently through to the bottle with minimal handling. Their “hands-off” approach delivers a pure expression of Central Otago to your glass.

7 tonne fermenters, 5 to 7 days cold maceration. Fermentation over 1 week with daily plunging followed by post fermentation maceration for around 3 weeks. Some batches made good use of whole bunch inclusion. Barrel élevage: 10 months in French oak; 35% new, 37% 1 year old.

Who made it?

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.
