A beautifully textured ripe yet delicate Pinot style,
elegant and expressive with a lovely long and silky finish.
Producer Note
Rockburn started as the hobby of Richard Bunton in 1991. He planted a few hectares
of vineyard in the then pretty much unknown area of Central Otago. In 2005,
Malcolm Francis the winemaker, arrived from Felton Road where his skills immediately
reaped the rewards when he won the Elite Gold Medal. This is a very exciting new
arrival on the world Pinot Noir stage.
Vineyard
Rockburn takes its name from the rugged, rock-strewn, burn scarred landscape of
Central Otago. Situated on the 45th parallel, Rockburn shares a climate that is
similar to Burgundy. The vineyards are surrounded by mountains to the west, whose
seaward slopes are rainforest, receiving 5000mm of rain per annum. To the east is a
barren, moon-like landscape that receives less than 25mm or rain a year. Situated
between these extremes, lies the Rockburn vineyard, which is producing Pinot Noir of
stunning quality.
Winemaking
A cold maceration took place for between five to seven days, followed by a
fermentation which took place in seven tonne fermenters, lasting just over one week,
with daily plunging. The post-fermentation maceration lasted between seven and 14
days, in order to extract the desired level of colour, tannins and flavour profile. The
wine was then barrel aged for ten months in 100% French oak, of which 33% was
new; 38% was one year old and 29% was two years old.
Tasting Note
Deeply fruited with delicate floral tones, enhanced by nuances of liquorice root and
supple, silky tannins leading into a long spicy finish. As always this wine shows classic
Rockburn elegance, integrity and balance.
Serving Suggestion
This is a wine to be savoured slowly, wonderful with duck or roasted red meats.
