Rockburn Pinot Noir 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 vintage yielded beautiful fruit from each of our sites, and we have simply guided this fruit gently through to the bottle with minimal handling. Our “hands-off” approach delivers a pure expression of Central Otago to your glass; very deeply fruited with delicate floral tones enhanced by nuances of Earl Grey tea, and supple, lithe tannins leading into a very long finish. As always this wine shows classic Rockburn elegance, integrity and balance.
