The Chosen Pinot Noir 2018
Here at Rockburn we deal not only with fruit from our own exceptional sites, but also from select vineyards located around the many and varied sub-regions of Central Otago. Once-in-a-while the nuances of site and season conspire to generate fruit of exceptional character, far too interesting to blend away and we choose instead to bottle this as a single vineyard expression of terroir distinct from our estate bottlings. The Chosen Pinot Noir 2018 is sourced from a Gibbston vineyard, displays qualities of plum, blackcurrant and tea leaf, and features a plush texture and firm tannin length. As a vegan wine, it contains no animal fining products, which is a result of our commitment to minimal intervention when producing our exemplary Pinot Noirs. Crafted for immediate enjoyment, this is a rare single vineyard wine which is ready to drink now, or cellar if you choose!
