Devils Staircase Pinot Gris 2020 750ml
Inspired by the winding road leading from Queenstown to Kingston along the shores of Lake Wakatipu and sourced from Rockburn’s Central Otago vineyards, the Devil’s Staircase Pinot Gris takes the willing down into the realm of decadence and Bacchanalian delights. Here, everything is pleasure spiced up with a bit of naughty.
The unrelenting Central Otago environment tortures the vines whose twisted limbs produce a wine worthy of absolution; honeydew nectar and lush fruits, sinfully succulent and devilishly good.
