2 X Rockburn Pinot Noir 2014

Distinctly Rockburn, quintessentially Central Otago. This is a very fine Pinot of grace and complexity. It’s spicy, savoury and fruity all at once, with dark cherry, mocha, balanced oak, and silky tannins peppered throughout. A wine to savour.

2 X Brash Vineyard Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Aromas of violets and glazed cherries are supported by hints of cedar, cassis and forest floor. The palate enters with fine-grained tannins and is followed by notes of bright raspberries and mulberries. A wonderful expression of Margaret River Cabernet from an exceptional vintage.

2 X Gatt Sangiovese 2014

This Sangiovese has an enticing bouquet of ripe plum, spicy vanillin oak and a whiff of smoked chestnut. The palate is rich in flavour with blackberry and forest fruit characters at the fore. Fine, dusty tannins enclose a mouth-filling palate, adding structure before leading into a generous finish.
