A superb Pinot Gris that is one of New Zealand's finest. This label was on the Air NZ Fine Wines list for the last 3 years and was featured in Michael Cooper's "The best 25 Pinot Gris in New Zealand". Prophet's Rock focus on the best varieties for their sites in Bendigo, Central Otago. Here the aromatics of Pinot Gris are pristine and precise, while the acidity stays fresh against the lovely ripeness and delicate sweetness. Perfect balance and concentration make this a delicious wine now or, unusually for Kiwi Gris, one you could lay down a while. Alsace quality for cheap Kiwi prices!

Overview

Pinot Gris

Its Origins

Established in 1999, Prophet’s Rock has become one of New Zealand’s most consistent boutique producers. The name comes from Central Otago’s goldmining pioneers (a physical landmark on a local claim), and the winery has retained an intensely local focus on its original vineyards and terroir - and the varieties that thrive there. Longtime winemaker Paul Pujol carried this ethic back from early work with legendary producers in France, especially in Burgundy, and with Maison Kuentz-Bas in Alsace. Prophet’s Rock maintain deep values of sustainable vineyard management as well as a very European sensibility, allowing wines to express each vintage. While capturing beautiful varietal expression, they pursue in each wine the less obvious - but more satisfying and food orientated - virtues of vinous texture, balance, complexity, and length. In doing so they can achieve an understated depth, harmony, and sometimes extreme age-worthiness that is highly unusual in New Zealand. Their home block is on an elevated site in Bendigo, with the ‘second’ vineyard Rocky Point in Southern Bendigo, on a steep site above lake Dunstan.

"Due for release on 1 October 2019. More aromatic and ethereal than the previous vintage with similar pear, apple and yeast lees flavours. A pretty wine from a hot vintage 13/9/2019." Drink 2019 - 2024
