Make the descent...there's a little devil in all of us! TASTING NOTES Inspired by the winding road leading from Queenstown to Kingston along the shores of Lake Wakatipu and sourced from Rockburn’s Central Otago vineyards, the Devil’s Staircase Pinot Gris takes the willing down into the realm of decadence and Bacchanalian delights. Here, everything is pleasure spiced up with a bit of naughty. The unrelenting Central Otago environment tortures the vines whose twisted limbs produce a wine worthy of absolution; honeydew nectar and lush fruits, sinfully succulent and devilishly good. The flavours are practically immoral, full of black Doris plums, blueberries and bramble fruit, and will leave you with an insatiable desire for more. PALATE Supple, full and fruity CELLARING 1-4 years FOOD ACCOMPANIMENTS Perfect with barbecued meat TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Harvest Date: 26th March - 4th May 2015 Bottled date: 3rd September 2015 Winemaker: Malcolm Rees-Francis Brix at Harvest: 22.3 -24.6 Alcohol: 13.0% Residual Sugar: <1 g/L Titratable Acidity: 5.0 g/L Ph: 3.75 92pts - Wine Enthusiast 91pts - Wine Spectator "Generous and plump, with blackberry, raspberry coulis and plum flavors that are round and velvety. Vanilla bean and warm clove accents emerge on the finish."
