We have spent the last 30 years working on identifying specialized sites on our Granton Estate for the development of an iconic Pinot Noir. This Single Block range has been selected for their specific terrior or soil type to truly express the uniqueness and individual personality of the Pinot Noir variety.
La Roccia, or the ‘rock’ in Italian, is a nod to the main geological feature of this block; a large limestone rock shelf in the middle of the block. The La Roccia block is always first picked and consistently produces wines with the greatest structure and tannin of the three blocks.
