Description

  • Nashi pear
  • Ginger spice
  • Honeydew melon
  • Flint

"It's elegantly fruited and engaging on the nose showing white flesh nectarine, fresh pear, apple and floral characters with a touch of flinty note. The palate is finely textured and persistent with bright fruit flavours together with vibrant acidity, finishing long and attractively savoury" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Mar 2020

The unrelenting Central Otago environment tortures the vines whose twisted limbs produce a wine worthy of absolution; with a bouquet of Nashi pears, ginger and lemon zest. Honeydew nectar and lush fruits, sinfully succulent and devilishly good.

Inspired by the winding road leading from Queenstown to Kingston along the shores of Lake Wakatipu and sourced from Rockburn’s Central Otago vineyards, the Devil’s Staircase Pinot Gris takes the willing down into the realm of decadence and Bacchanalian delights. Here, everything is pleasure spiced up with a bit of naughty. 

Food Pairing: Fresh seafood, pork and chicken dishes.

Excellent Pinot Gris. Deep flavour! Needs a bit of time however. Give it a year...and then WOW.
