Rockburn Central Otago Pinot Noir 2021 $45

Cranberry coloured and erupting with florentine aromatics – dark cocoa, cherry, citrus oils and spices galore, this shiny new pinot crafted from fruit grown in Rockburn’s Gibbston and Parkburn vineyards is a stylishly structured wine that slips down in silky fashion. Soft, smoky characters merge with gentle tannins that deliver that lovely prickle under the top lip and the mid-palate has a black tea and berry-driven lushness. Nicely done and very nicely balanced.
