Rockburn Pinot Noir 2014

Tasting notes

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.

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.

Vinification

7 tonne fermenters, 5 to 7 days cold maceration; fermentation over 1 week with daily plunging followed by post fermentation maceration for 7 to 14 days. Barrel ageing 10 months in 100% French oak; 33% new, 38% 1 year old, 29% 2 years old.
