2006 Rockburn Pinot Noir
The 2006 vintage delivered us perfectly ripened fruit, and our new winery helped us guide this fruit gently through to the bottle with minimal handling. Our “hands-off” approach delivers a pure expression of Central Otago to your glass; rich, intense fruits, delicate floral tones enhanced by nuances of wild thyme, and creamy, silky tannins leading into a long mocha finish, and shows classic Rockburn elegance, integrity and balance. Enjoy with friends over the next 6-8 years.
