2016 Rockburn Seven Barrels Pinot Noir
Rockburn Seven Barrels: the name says it all really. Every year we fill hundreds of French oak barrels with Pinot Noir, and every year Malcolm searches for those individual barrels that most eloquently speak of site and season. We present the results of that search with a wine that exhibits the attributes we enjoy most about Pinot Noir; subtlety, elegance and personality.
The 2016 Seven Barrels Pinot Noir is a single vineyard wine displaying the elegance, power and grace generated by our Gibbston Back Road Vineyard site.
The 2016 vintage had a long, dry autumn, encouraging perfect ripeness in all our fruit, while retaining great levels of complexity and subtlety in the cooler Gibbston sub-region.
