Rockburn Central Otago Pinot Noir 2020 $45

Made by Malcolm Rees-Francis, the most dapperly-dressed man in all the land, this bright-as-a-button new release features a combo of 85% Parkburn Vineyard fruit and 15% Gibbston Valley fruit which knits together buckets of fresh spices, perky red fruits and lush, dark floral notes. Cherry, redcurrant and rhubarb flavours wrap around black tea and tweaks of baked tamarillo to create a lush, supremely lively, super-fresh style that’s drinking beautifully now, but will mature sensationally over the next seven years or so.


Paired with Spiced Lamb Meatball flatbreads in Issue 99 dish Magazine.
