2021 'La Roccia' Pinot Noir
Biodynamic ∙ Organic ∙ Vegan
We have spent the last 31 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 two blocks.
Halliday Wine Companion: 'Another Lubiana single-block wine that wows with complexity and a vivid line, this time from a large limestone rock shelf in the middle of the Granton Estate vineyard in the Derwent Valley. Mid-ruby in the glass with wild cherry fruits speckled with amaro herbs and exotic spices, dried tangerine rind, Chinese barbecue, shiitake, rhubarb and turned earth. Chewy tannin support and a vivid acid line provide tension and cadence, finishing long, true and pure.' - 96 Points, Dave Brooks.
