Description

Rockburn Central Otago Pinot Noir

Rockburn Central Otago Pinot Noir has a very perfumed nose, displaying lifted notes of dark cherry and ripe strawberry followed by some anise, meaty characters and spice.

The palate of Rockburn Central Otago Pinot Noir, possesses plenty of richness along with a round supple texture, with dark cherries spice, ripe strawberry and anise with some spicy cedar.

Soft very fine grained tannins, excellent power, with a long after taste of dark cherry, anise and spice.

Rockburn takes its name from the rugged, rock-strewn, burn-scarred landscape of Central Otago.

The region is renowned for its stunning scenery of rugged mountains and picturesque lakes.

Central Otago’s wine industry symbolizes success and its continental climate rivals Europe’s best.

The region has a long viticultural tradition, and French immigrant Jean Desire Feraud, who pioneered grape-growing and wine production over 100 years ago, left a strong legacy.

Today more than 1,000 hectares of grapes flourish in unique growing conditions. The skills of talented winemakers produce quality boutique wines to compete with the country’s finest.

Rockburn takes its name from the rugged, rock-strewn, burn-scarred landscape of Central Otago.

The region is renowned for its stunning scenery of rugged mountains and picturesque lakes.

Nestled on the 45th parallel we share a climate that is similar to Burgundy, the great Pinot Noir producing region of the world.

Our vineyards are bounded on the west by mountains on whose seaward slopes are rain forests, which receive 5000mm of rain a year. http://www.rockburn.co.nz/story.html

To the east is a barren, moon-Iike landscape that receives less than 25mm of rain a year.

Situated between these extremes are our vineyards that produce not only Pinot Noir of stunning quality (gold medals at New Zealand Wine Society Royal Easter Wine Show, Bragato Awards, Air New Zealand, and Winestate Wine of the Year) , but also medal winning Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Gewurztraminer.

All our wines exhibit strong varietal characteristics, highlighted in the white varieties by crisp acids, which are typical of the region.

It has also become apparent that like Burgundy there are distinct ‘appellations’ within Central Otago.

One has only to taste a Gibbston Valley Pinot Noir to experience its perfumed nose, typically violets, and earthy, forest floor sensations on the palate.

Compare this with a Lowburn/Bannockburn Pinot Noir with its darker colour and fuller, sweeter fruit.

For this reason, to fully exploit the potential of the region, it is a distinct advantage to have vineyards in different ‘appellations’.

This Cabernet is a limited release showing great depth of colour, rich blackcurrant flavours together with a firm, fine grained tannin finish- a wine of great concentration and style which can be cellared with confidence. After a short burst of heat in late January and early February, it was warm and stable for the remainder of the vintage producing richly flavoured red wines of exceptional quality. Mentor is an ideal accompaniment to duck, goose and game dishes. It is superb with oxtail, braised lamb shanks and wonderful with a fine aged cheddar.
