Rocky Point is produced exclusively from our own vineyards and the wines benefit from the classical approach that is the hallmark of Prophet’s Rock. In the winery the fruit is handled with the same care, respect and methods used for all Prophet’s Rock wines. The Rocky Point Pinot Noir is barrel-aged before bottling.
The Rocky Point Pinot Noir are typically expressive, perfumed and supple wines that drink very well in their youth. For those with patience, the wines will continue to improve, with peak drinking 5-7 years from vintage. The Rocky Point Pinot Noir has consistently won awards and great reviews since the first release in 2003.

This youthful, fruit-packed red was hand-harvested at the company’s two sites at Bendigo and matured in French oak casks (15% new). Full-coloured, it is mouthfilling, vibrant and supple, with fresh acidity and concentrated, plummy, spicy, slightly nutty flavours. Already highly approachable, it should be at its best from 2022 onwards.Winestate Otago Waitaki Valley Results, 4.5 stars
