Prophet’s Rock Dry Riesling 2018

RRP: $39.99

The Prophet’s Rock Dry Riesling comes from our Rocky Point vineyard, where we have a tiny one-hectare parcel growing on schist rock soil. Riesling holds a special place in our hearts and gets a lot of attention in the vineyard and winery.

Description

It gets the same meticulous treatment in the vineyard as our top Pinot Noir, and our yields are extremely low, creating a concentrated expression of our unique site. Averaging only 300 cases per vintage, our Dry Riesling is a rare find. The vinification is heavily influenced by Paul’s time in Alsace, where use of wild yeast, multiple small vessels and long ageing are the norm.

After lengthy slow ferments, the various components are aged on their yeast lees before bottling. The wine is cellared for at least two years before release. This wine has been extremely well-reviewed since the first release in 2006.

Playing catch up on a few great wines 🥂 I had this @prophetsrock Cuveé Aux Antipodes Blanc the other week, all class - still thinking about it👌🏻 Double decanted at the request of @paulpujol a great tip for serious Chardonnay.  I had tasted a rudimentary blend from barrel pre-release and I was blown away. To my sheer joy it was the same wine in the bottle (Unfined? Unfiltered?) 👏🏻 People prattle on about wines being Burgundian (I prattle on about wines being Burgundian) THIS is Burgundian, all that lovely minerality and texture as well as flinty-creamy white peach tannins and aromatics you can interrogate for hours.  A full spectrum of white flowers, distant oak and baked apples and pears 🥧 Love the two old vines on the label too.  Looking forward to Paul & François’ love for the great white grape growing intertwined over the years .
