Rockstar pinot noir

Rockburn Pinot Noir 2016, Central Otago, NZD $49.99

Fruit-focused pinot noir with plump plum and ripe dark cherry flavours together with mixed spice and a hint of floral characters. Silken-textured wine in a very appealing and accessible style. Another winner from Rockburn. (Screwcap)
