This Pinot Gris amazingly consistent in style and quality, sweet pear and red apple aromas with hints of white spice and white flowers. The palate is medium in body with concentrated fruit notes and finishes with a splash of acidity, followed by crunchy mineral and light phenolics adding to the complexity and giving structure to the wine. Well balanced and delicious as always!
This textured and aromatic Pinot Gris comes from a classic’ vintage for Central Otago. A warm summer followed by a long fine autumn giving the wines ripeness whilst retaining great freshness. The structure and weight of this wine makes it a versatile food match from seafood to white meats and which can also be paired with spice and stronger flavours. This wine will continue to cellar well for further complexity over the next 7-10 years.
The Prophet’s Rock Pinot Gris has received exceptional reviews since the first release in 2007 and has been a matched wine on the degustation menu at Heston Blumenthal’s Michelin three-starred restaurant The Fat Duck. Winner of the Air New Zealand Fine Wine Award for New Zealand’s top iconic wines since the award started in 2016.
“Aromas of baked pear and saffron, followed by button mushrooms and savory dried herbs. Off-dry, medium-bodied with a vivid acid backbone. Fascinating wine with plenty of zesty complexity. Drink or hold.” – JamesSuckling.com
