Grasshopper Rock 2014 Pinot Noir

$48.00 - $528.00

From the southernmost sub-region of Central Otago, Alexandra, Grasshopper Rock proves its pinot 'rockstar' status, vintage after vintage.

Newly released 2014 is among the best, it sweeps you away with the brilliance of the purple-hued colour, the aromas of blackcurrant jelly and the ripe/juicy/bouncy fruit in the mouth. It is both a mouth-filling and mouth-watering pinot.

Vineyard notes on the special characteristics of Grasshopper Rock site: 'The vineyard is situated on Earnscleugh Road, across the Clutha River from Alexandra. The site enjoys high sunshine hours and high mean temperatures and is sufficiently harsh and difficult to make the vines work their hardest. With extremes of heat and cold comes the risk of spring and autumn frosts, providing a demanding but rewarding environment for the production of premium pinot noir.'

The team behind Grasshopper Rock focus all their attention on this single wine - there are no 'reserve' wines, no other grapes grown on the vineyard, just a single-minded determination to produce the best pinot noir possible.

     

    Pinot Shop is located in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia at 135 Paterson Street down at the river end near Cataract Gorge, Stillwater Restaurant and The Mill Providore. We specialise in the best of premium pinot noir as grown so beautifully in the cool climes of Tasmania, New Zealand and southern parts of the big Australian continent. Our love for pinot extends to its sibling styles pinot gris and grigio and fizzy cousins sparkling wine and Champagne, even when they don’t contain pinot noir. That’s not to say we’ve become too exclusive - we also stock an interesting range of delicious wines for those (rare) times when you’re not drinking pinot…
