Roserock Pinot Noir 2018

Domaine Drouhin's Roserock Pinot Noir is a cuvée selection from the estate’s 35 blocks, which are all handpicked, sorted and individually fermented. While Pinot Noirs from the Eola-Amity Hills are typically known for their structure and power, Véronique Drouhin emphasises Roserock’s elegant and refined qualities, making for a delicious and age worthy cuvée. The 2018 Roserock Pinot Noir is a lively, energetic expression of both the vintage and the Eola Hills. The colour is a striking light garnet, darkening at the core. On the nose, black currant and ripe plum, followed by crushed red flowers and clove. The palate opens with intense cherry and cranberry, mixed with a hint of allspice and light notes of oak. The tannins are dusty yet elegant, blending beautifully with the fresh and bright acidity. Texture, balance, and length are all impeccable, making for a pretty wine that drinks well now but should age very nicely for 6-8 years and beyond.
