Rockburn Devils Staircase Pinot Noir 2017

100% Pinot Noir sourced from several Central Otago vineyards.

he Devil’s Staircase wines are inspired by the winding road leading from Queenstown to Kingston along the shores of Lake Wakatipu. Rockburn's philosophy is to treat the fruit, and subsequent wine, as gently as possible with minimum interference and maximum ease of use.

Winemaker's Comments

The unrelenting Central Otago environment tortures the vines, whose twisted limbs produce a wine worthy of absolution; strong and sensual with lashings of dark fruit, sinfully succulent and devilishly good. The flavours are practically immoral, full of black Doris plums, blueberries and bramble fruit, leaving an insatiable desire for more!

    Michael Cooper Buyers Guide to NZ Wines notes:
    "From Rockburn, this is a drink-young style, handled without barrel aging. The 2017 vintage (3.5*) is ruby-hued, fragrant, fruity and supple, with strong cherry and plum flavours, vibrant and smooth."
