2022 Rockburn The Chosen Hillside Pinot Noir | 1.5L Magnum
RRP $220 / 1500ml (40 Produced)
Many grapes are picked. Not all are chosen. But as we seek eloquent expressions of site and season there are some special spots in the vineyard that assert themselves immediately; a row of vines that can stop a winemaker in their tracks, a small planting that has achieved perfect harmony and resonance with the sun and soil.
This wine was Chosen from just such a place. The Hillside block is unique in our Parkburn Vineyard, having a steep Easterly aspect, catching the full morning sun but avoiding the late afternoon heat. Several clones are planted here, but have blended harmoniously to create a wine of great purity and presence.
Expect to see this youthful wine transform and evolve over a decade or more; please be aware a fine deposit may occur as a result of our minimal handling philosophy.
