Rockburn takes its name from the rugged, rock-strewn landscape of Central Otago. The region is renowned for its stunning scenery of rugged mountains and picturesque lakes. Nestled on the 45th parallel it shares a climate that is similar to Burgundy. The vineyards are bound on the west by mountains on whose seaward slopes are rain forests, which receive 5000mm of rain a year. To the east is a barren, moon-like landscape that receives less than 25mm of rain a year.Rockburn is located between these two extremes and regularly produces Pinot Noir of outstanding quality, with the 2009 awarded Best Pinot Noir at the Shanghai International Wine Challenge and Best Pinot Noir and Wine of Show at the Boutique Winemaker awards. Maturation took place in 100% French Oak of which 35% was new, 35% 1 & 2 years old and 30% older for a period of 10 months.
Semi translucent, dark crimson red colour with crimson mauve hue. Very perfumed nose displaying lifted notes of dark cherry and ripe strawberry followed by some anise, meaty characters and spice. Medium weight the palate possesses plenty of richness along with a round supple texture. Flavours of dark cherries, spice, ripe strawberry and anise with some spicy cedar persisting on the back palate. Soft very fine grained tannins. Excellent power wave with long aftertaste of dark cherry, anise and spice.
Drink over the next 2-3 years (2011-2014).
