Rock Ferry 3rd Rock Central Otago Pinot Noir (2018)

Estate-grown at the high-altitude Trig Hill Vineyard at Bendigo, in the Cromwell Basin, the 2018 vintage (5*) was matured for 20 months in French oak barrels (25 per cent new), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Ruby hued, with a highly fragrant, spicy, savoury bouquet, it is mouthfilling and complex, with cherry, plum, spice and nutty oak flavours, good tannin backbone, and obvious potential; best drinking 2023+. Showing strong personality, it's certified organic.
