Rockburn Tasting Winemaker Malcolm Francis

  • Point Wines 141 Queen Street Auckland, Auckland, 0627 New Zealand (map)

Join us next Wednesday the 4th of October for our Rockburn Tasting with winemaker Malcolm Francis. 

Taking its name from the rugged rock-strewn, burn-scarred landscape of Central Otago, Rockburn produces premium wines of intense varietal characteristics. Nestled on the 45th parallel, it shares a climate that is similar to Burgundy, the great Pinot Noir producing region of the world. Grapes are hand-picked from their Parkburn Vineyard and Gibbston Valley Back Road Vineyard, each site contributing fruit characteristics that reflect their unique terroir. Their wines are then carefully crafted to fully express the complex subtleties available only in New Zealand’s one true continental climate.
