Devil’s Staircase wines are inspired by the winding road leading from Queenstown to Kingston along the shores of Lake Wakatipu. Sourced from several Central Otago vineyards, the Devil’s Staircase Pinot Noir has aromas of black Doris plums, blueberries and dark cherries. The palate is very fruity, rich and supple with long smooth finish and soft tannins. Vinified in tank with no oak influnce, this succulent wine is best enjoyed in its youth.

"Lifted, quite floral aroma with violet, cherry, wild thyme, anise and a hint of fresh herbs on the palate. A bright, vibrant wine in a classical Rockburn fruit-forward style. Good now but should benefit from bottle age"

"A magnificent offering; the gorgeously complex bouquet shows dark cherry, vanilla, thyme, dark mushroom and warm spice aromas, leading to a concentrated palate that's richly textured and expansive. The wine offers terrific fruit purity and power, while remaining elegant and harmonious, making it hugely appealing. At its best: now to 2029"

"A really lovely bouquet of Pinot Noir with ripe, varietal and engaging aromas of freeze-dried raspberry and baked red cherry, a layer of black currant then a mix of wood spices and gentle smoky oak scents. On the palate - vibrant and full of energy, youthful and tense with palate grabbing acidity, ripe and firmly textured tannins then a core of red fruit flavours that reflect the nose. As always very well made with a lengthy, dry finish. A wine that should be cellared for a year more with best drinking from mid to late 2021 through 2025"
