  • Tasting notes
    The 2016 vintage yielded beautiful fruit from each of our sites, which we have simply guided gently through to the bottle with minimal handling. Our “hands-off” approach delivers a pure expression of Central Otago to your glass; an expressive nose and deeply fruited palate displaying vibrant notes of red and black cherry, rich mocha and supple, silky tannins leading into a very long finish.

Nick Stock, GoodWineGuide.com.au

An alluring nose on the 2011 Rockburn Pinot Noir, showing gamey red and dark berry fruits laced with exotic spice, Chinese masterstock, earth and Peking duck, with lighter tones of tobacco and smoky oak. Energetic, with ample drive across the palate and a savoury finish.

Bob Campbell, MW

Vintage 2016 - Fruit-focused pinot noir with plump plum and ripe dark cherry flavours, together with mixed spice and a hint of floral characters. A silken-textured wine in a very appealing and accessible style. Another winner from Rockburn.

Raymond Chan Wine Reviews

Vintage 2016 - This is a well-proportioned and concentrated, sweetly rich Pinot Noir with cherry, raspberry, plum and liquorice notes on a finely structured palate.

Michael Cooper Wine Tasting

Vintage 2016 - This vintage is full-coloured and fragrant, with mouthfilling body and generous, vibrant cherry, plum and spice flavours, ripe and rounded. Delicious from the start
