At latitude 45 degrees south, Central Otago is the southernmost wine region in the world. Snow topped mountains, rocky ranges and dry tussock hills, a place of climatic extremes, bitterly cold winters, parched soils and discouragingly poor fertility. Designed by the angels in heaven for sublime and stupendous vintages of Pinot Noir. At the very epicentre of the most desirable confluence in Central Otago microclimes is Nanny Goat Vineyard.

Rockbare are raiders of precious but wayward vineyards, planted to outdated standards of viticulture, sadly unviable for large scale winemaking. These are however, precisely the nature of site that Rockbare choose to retain. Winemaker Tim Burvill worked at Wynns and Penfolds, where he refined his style alongside some of the best winemakers in the nation's history. Establishing his own label, he embarked upon a secret project to acquire parcels of prodigal Barossa vine. With a backbone of fruit grown to some of the oldest sites in Australia, much of Rockbare's fruit comes off vines a century or more of age.

Castelli's strict regimen of close canopy management achieves harvests brimming with fully ripenend flavours. Fruit is crushed and held for a term of cold soak, inoculated to yeast strains F15 and FX10, followed by a rather warm vinification for a fortnight on skins at temperatures of 25°C to 30°C. Ferments are treated to pump overs twice daily, gentle tannin extractions and a course or two of rack returns. Upon completion, batches are transferred to a selection of seasoned and new French oak barriques for a judicious spell of maturation.
