FIVE STARS 18.5/20 | Candice Chow for Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
94 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS
Rockburn are synonymous with quality, elegance and consistency and the 2019 Pinot Noir knocks it out of the park. A “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. As always this wine shows classic Rockburn elegance, integrity and balance.
Sam Kim writes "95 pts. A magnificent offering; the gorgeously complex bouquet shows dark cherry, vanilla, thyme, dark mushroom and warm spice aromas, leading to a concentrated palate that's richly textured and expansive. The wine offers terrific fruit purity and power, while remaining elegant and harmonious, making it hugely appealing."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "94 pts. A really lovely bouquet of Pinot Noir with ripe, varietal and engaging aromas of freeze-dried raspberry and baked red cherry, a layer of black currant then a mix of wood spices and gentle smoky oak scents. On the palate - vibrant and full of energy, youthful and tense with palate grabbing acidity, ripe and firmly textured tannins then a core of red fruit flavours that reflect the nose. As always very well made with a lengthy, dry finish. A wine that should be cellared for a year more with best drinking from mid to late 2021 through 2025+."
