Rockburn Eleven Barrels Parkburn Vineyard Central Otago Pinot Noir 2022 $99

What happens when winemaker Malcolm Rees-Francis gets hold of amazing quality, Abel clone, Parkburn-grown fruit and throws it into a 7tonne fermenter for an eight-day cold soak, followed by a week-long ferment with daily hand plunging then a 10-day post-ferment soak before being aged for 14 months in 27% new French oak?  You get this exotically-spiced, soothing, rhubarb and cream-laced lovely with soft, suede-like tannins and a seam of wildfires creeping through wild thyme. Serve in the largest, most swirlable glass you can find.
