Description

  • Spicy oak
  • Plum
  • Raspberry
  • Firm tannins

"This is stylish and magnificently expressed; the seductively complex bouquet shows spiced cherry, ripe strawberry, game, thyme, cedar and savoury mushroom notes, leading to a succulent palate that is concentrated and expansive. The wine offers outstanding fruit purity combined with splendid complexity, backed by fine, grainy tannins, finishing impressively long and refined. At its best: 2020 to 2028" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jun 2019

"An elegant, supple Pinot Noir with floral, violet, plum, raspberry, thyme and spicy oak flavours. Sleek wine with a silken texture. Quite forward and restrained. A new label from Rockburn" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, May 2019

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 the winemakers commitment to minimal intervention when producing Rockburns 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!

At Rockburn they deal not only with fruit from their 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 they choose instead to bottle this as a single vineyard expression of terroir distinct from their estate bottlings.
