Rockburn's Pinot is the goto wine, but don't neglect the joy of this rich, yet well contained, Central Otago Pinot Gris. Texture is the real champion here, making for a wine that is like a big hug of pear fruit, embracing you with its deliciousness, before a well balanced finish.

How's it taste?

Rockburn Devil's Staircase Pinot Gris is bright yellow in colour. Its nose is a spicy mix of pears, red apples, ripening stone fruits, honeysuckle, and orange blossoms coupled with a hint of light spice and lees layer. Underpinned aromas of almond, honey, saline, clove, fennel and ginger are refined and exotic. The front palate is fruity and spicy with a balance of fresh acidity and sweetness. Lychee flavours run through the back palate, ending in a dry finish. While the wine is medium-dry in style, the fruit concentration is ideal. The unrelenting Central Otago environment tortures the vines whose twisted limbs produce a wine worthy of absolution; honeydew nectar and lush fruits, sinfully succulent and devilishly good. Bouquet is a blend of Nashi pears, ginger and lemon zest

How was it made?

The grapes were handpicked and produced by multi-award-winning winemaker, Malcolm Rees-Francis who says: "Central Otago is a great place to grow Pinot Gris with the cool nights maintaining acidity and bright fruit flavours, and bright sunshine encouraging textural components in the skins".

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.
