2017 Rockburn Pinot Noir | 1.5l MAGNUM
The 2017 vintage yielded beautiful fruit from each of our sites, which we have simply guided gently through to the bottle with minimal handling. Our “hands-off” approach delivers a pure expression of Central Otago to your glass; an expressive nose and deeply fruited palate displaying vibrant notes of red and black cherry, rich mocha and supple, silky tannins leading into a very long finish.
As always this wine shows classic Rockburn elegance, integrity and balance.
"Splendidly composed and harmonious, offering terrific drinking. At its best: now to 2022"

"This is a finely concentrated Pinot Noir with ripe dark-red and black fruit and a subtle layering of herbs and whole bunch elements, with a refined structure and fresh acidity. Serve with beef, lamb and venison over the next 6 years."
