Rockburn Central Otago Pinot Noir (2020)

This consistently stylish blend of Parkburn (principally) and Gibbston grapes typically has concentrated cherry, plum and dried-herb flavours, silky-textured and perfumed. The graceful, finely poised 2020 vintage (4.5*) was matured for 10 months in French oak barrels (33 per cent new). Deep ruby, it is fragrant and vibrantly fruity, with mouthfilling body and strong cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing excellent vigour and harmony. Best drinking 2024+.
