Rockburn Pinot Noir Pinot Noir 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Light brown-red in color. Sweet aroma. Medium bodied. Smooth and long lasting taste. Very little tannins.
