This is one legendary Kiwi Pinot Noir.

Every vintage of Rockburn's superb Central Otago Pinot Noir has won a gold medal (at least one) since 2001, and this 2017 has done it again. In fact, it has gone one better, taking out two trophies at the NZ International Wine Show, and declared 'Wine of Show' - effectively the highest honour in NZ wine!

What a wine it is too, Deeply flavoured. Vitally aromatic, tannic and ripe. It's Central Otago Pinot how you want it to taste.

Expert Reviews

95 Points - Sam Kim - Wine OrbitWonderfully fruited and perfumed, the gorgeously expressed bouquet shows dark cherry, raspberry, game, thyme and roasted almond characters with nuances of mushroom and spice. The palate is concentrated and beautifully weighted, displaying elegance as well as richness, backed by seamlessly woven fine tannins. Splendidly composed and harmonious, offering terrific drinking.
95 Points - Bob Campbell MW - The Real ReviewRichly-textural pinot noir with ripe plum, dark cherry, coffee, liquorice and sweet oak flavours. A generously-proportioned wine, with layers of subtle flavours leading to a lengthy finish. Very impressive.
91 Points - Joe Czerwinski - Wine AdvocateA blend of (mainly) Parkburn and a bit of Gibbston fruit, the 2017 Pinot Noir showcases the darker-fruit style typical of Rockburn, with notes of black cherries and cola leading the way, framed by cedary French oak (35% new). It's medium-bodied and smooth on the palate, with ripe, supple tannins, balanced acids and a fine, lingering finish.

How's it taste?

The 2017 vintage yielded beautiful fruit from each of our sites, which we have simply guided gently through to the bottle with minimal handling. Our “hands-off” approach delivers a pure expression of Central Otago to your glass; 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.

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.

Let’s face it - we all have very different wine tastes and not every wine you find will be right for you right now. That’s why I’ve put together a little selection of my favourites - wines that I’d be very happy to enjoy this weekend which are guaranteed to hit the spot.
