Grasshopper Rock is one of the world’s southern most vineyards, established in 2003 and dedicated exclusively to pinot noir. The vineyard is situated on Earnscleugh Road, across the Clutha River from Alexandra. The site enjoys high sunshine hours by day and very cool temperatures by night 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.
What The Critics Say
93/100 Bob Campbell MW
"A new label for Grasshopper Rock. Made from pinot noir grapes grown on two vineyards. Mid-pink rosé, with a gentle candy floss aroma leading to intense flavours of strawberry, raspberry and cherry fruit flavours with subtle spices on the finish. Dry but not austere. A serious rosé. 05 NOV 2020." Drink 2020 - 2023
