Pretty Good

Rockburn Eight Barrels; the name says it all really. Every year we fill hundreds of French oak barrels with Pinot Noir, and every year I search for those individual barrels that most eloquently speak of site and season. We present the results of that search to you here with a wine that exhibits the attributes I enjoy most about Pinot Noir; subtlety, elegance and personality. The 2019 Eight Barrels Gibbston Vineyard Pinot Noir is a single vineyard wine displaying the elegance, power and grace generated by our Gibbston Back Road Vineyard site. Dark and concentrated, the Eight Barrels displays notes of bramble fruit, truffle and cedar char, with lifted florals on the nose, and seamless texture to the palate. With a fine balance of ripe tannin, natural acidity and lively fruit, this wine truly represents the Gibbston sub-region and its complex nature. Expect to see this youthful wine transform and evolve over a decade or more; please be aware a fine deposit may occur as a result of our minimal handling philosophy.
