Prophet's Rock, Home Vineyard Pinot Noir, Central Otago - 2017

${symbol}${ activeVariant.price | money }

The foundation of this wine is Prophet's Rock's focus on delivering low-yielding concentrated fruit that expresses their vineyard. In the winery, they employ traditional old world techniques; the grapes are handled gently and the wines are fermented using only the indigenous yeast from the vineyard.

The wines are aged in barrel for 15-18 months before being bottled unfiltered, and are cellared before release. Since the first release in 2005, the Prophet’s Rock Pinot Noir has consistently been one of the best-reviewed Pinot Noirs in New Zealand.

Cellaring will reward collectors over the next 10+ years from vintage. 861 cases were made.

 

"Really lovely bouquet with layers of fruit and oak, a nervous youthful texture with firm tannins and acidity to match. The fruit ripeness punches through the new oak layers and texture-laden tannins with a fleshy, generous and red berry surge. Complexity builds as the wine opens up in glass, layers of fruit and spice begin to emerge after a few minutes. A wine still relaxing and developing. Drinkable now, but best from 2021 through 2028."
