Prophet's Rock Rocky Point Pinot Noir 2019 (Central Otago, New Zealand) "...
The Rocky Point delivers an aromatic, structured expression of Prophet Rocks' steep and stony Central Otago vineyard. Consistently punching above its price point, this wine shows dark cherries with plum and a silky smooth lingering finish.
A combination of red and black cherries, juicy plum and intense herb and floral notes. Medium bodied with beautiful clear and bright fruit flavours, dusty tannins and a lingering finish. Young, fresh, vibrant and ready to drink!
Gorgeously fruited and inviting, the wine shows Black Doris plum, ripe cherry, vanilla, hazelnut and subtle spice aromas on the nose, leading to a wonderfully weighted palate that's silky and persistent. It's flavoursome and satisfying with elegant complexity, offering fabulous drinkability. At its best: now to 2025.
"A concentrated & elegant wine capturing the aromatics & velvety tannins sought after in the best Central Otago Pinot Noir. Drawn primarily from our Rocky Point Vineyard, an extremely steep site on schist rock soil. Pinot Noir from this site always shows a subtle mineral character underlying the plush aromatics & texture." - Winery Notes
