Amber Pinot Gris 2023 750ml

Rockburn Amber Pinot Gris 2023 750ml

Rockburn Amber is an alternate take on what Pinot Gris can mean as an expression of terroir; an "orange wine" style, we have fermented the grapes on their skins, precisely as we do with Pinot Noir.

Leave your pre-conceptions behind and this wine will open your eyes.

A single vineyard wine, the Amber displays the complex, textural characters and dusky peach colour generated by the tannins present in the grape skins of Pinot Gris.

Fermented in a small open-top vat and hand-plunged daily, aromatics and phenols are gently extracted over three weeks. Malo-lactic fermentation occurs naturally in the spring; after a year's maturation in old, neutral oak barrels the wine is bottled without fining or filtration.

Expect complex layers of rose, grapefruit, and peach notes in harmony with broad mouthfeel, gathered by a citrus peel tension. Best enjoyed very lightly chilled with food, we anticipate cellaring potential over the next six years. 

Minimum order: 6 bottles across Rockburn's range.


Price based on case of any 15x 750ml bottles, all-inclusive of freight, taxes, duty and insurance from NZ Producer to your door in Australia. All prices based on live exchange rate.
