Grasshopper Rock Pinot Noir 2006-2009

17-Mar-2011
Grasshopper Rock is a small 8 ha vineyard on Earnscleugh Road in the Alexandra sub-region of Central Otago dedicated solely to the production of Pinot Noir. Five families own the operation and have the aspiration of producing world-class wine. Carol Bunn is the contracted winemaker, making every vintage released so far, from the inaugural 2006 to the newly released 2009. The name is taken after the rare Sigaus childi grasshopper, indigenous to Central Otago. Notes follow for all four vintages to date. The vertical tasting shows the continued improvement of this label. www.grasshopperrock.co.nz
