[SOLD-OUT] Prophet's Rock Pinot Noir 2016

JAMES SUCKLING 96 POINTS! CAMERON DOUGLAS MS 96 POINTS!

"This is very good. The rich and attractive, fresh red cherries and plums sing in the glass. It delivers a very vibrant impression with blood oranges and pomegranate in the mix, too. Smooth tannins carry long and seamless, drenched in ripe red-cherry and pithy pink-grapefruit flavors. Super long and rippling with energetic fruit, this is a beautiful young pinot. Drink or hold."

- James Suckling

"Immediate and enticing bouquet with layers of dark red berry fruits, plum, baking spice, oak, crushed rocks and complexity. On the palate a focused and detailed Pinot with flavours of toasty oak and brown baking spices, dark berries, plum and old rose. A lengthy finish, complex and filled with Pinosity. Youthful with loads of energy. Decant for service – best drinking from late 2021 through 2027+."

- Cameron Douglas, MS

"Our flagship Pinot Noir – Sourced from our ‘Home Vineyard’ on a steep, elevated terrace in the Bendigo sub-region. Here, altitude, climate, fascinating soils and meticulous viticulture combine to produce Pinot Noir with stature and concentration. Pinot Noir is the largest part of our production and a complete no-compromise obsession.

The foundation of this wine is our focus on delivering low-yielding concentrated fruit that expresses our vineyard. In the winery, we 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.

A traditional aesthetic - respectful, patient, vineyard-focussed - resonates in our approach, and frees the wine to express the unique tenor of our sites. Careful cellaring will reward collectors over 10+ years."
