The Rockburn 2011 pinot noir is a big gun on the awards circuit, consistently taking out trophies. Garnet red – almost purple – in colour, this wine has many layers of spice (cloves, nutmeg and pepper) as well as the brooding backbone aromas of blackberry and black cherry. It has a ripe fruit taste on the palate with coating texture and tannins. It also has great length. Little wonder it has earned so many awards.
If you’re after a blockbuster wine for any occasion, go for this one. It retails for around $45 a bottle.
This is a vegan wine made without the use of animal products.
