Prophet's Rock

prophet's vines

Steep and elevated, the vines of Prophet's Rock are planted on a curious and rare mix of soils that include schist, clay and chalk, giving the wines great detail, freshness and minerailty. To really underline the unique terroir of their Home Block and Rocky Point vineyards, winemaker Paul Pujol uses all the skills he learned working in France's famed Sancerre, Burgundy and Alsace regions - and this shows in both his white and red wines.

This week we are honoured to be able to offer you Prophet's Rock extraordinary offerings, including Paul's stunning collaboration with longtime friend François Millet of Domaine Comte de Vogüe in Chambolle-Musigny; the 98 Points Cuvée aux Antipodes!

THE WINES

2017 Riesling - $42
Wild yeast ferment in old oak barrels & cellared before release. Complex, floral & citrus aromas with great freshness, spice & underlying minerality.

2017 Pinot Gris - $42
"Brilliant straw-yellow colour with light golden tints, pale on the rim. The nose is fresh and full with vibrant, up-front and rich aromas of ripe yellow stone fruits and hints of pear and honeysuckle harmoniously melded with complexing smoke, nutty lees and mineral elements. This has richness, intensity, detail and depth." - 5 Stars, Raymond Chan

2017 Rocky Point Pinot Noir - $34
"One of the most consistently excellent and appealing pinots, the latest offering is filled with delectable fruit flavours of dark cherry and blueberry, together with toasted almond, game and violet nuances. The palate displays lovely weight and centration, wonderfully complemented by silky texture and flowing mouthfeel, finishing long and succulent. At its best: now to 2022." - 93 Points, Wine Orbit

2015 Home Block Pinot Noir - $54
“A different shape to this wine. There’s a more savory edge to the aromas and flavors initially. Then, a core of bright, pristine and spicy red-cherry flavor emanates from the center of the palate. Fresh and sustained finish. Great pinot that will age nicely. Drink or hold”. - 94 Points, The Wine Advocate

2017 Cuvée Aux Antipodes Pinot Noir - $188
“Deep red colour with a strong purple tint. The bouquet is fresh and vibrant and loaded with dark fruit aromas, cherry uppermost, spices and dried herbs touches. Oak is apparent early but recedes into balance with exposure to the air. The palate opens with powerful flavour and marked acidity. A concentrated, powerful and beautifully poised wine with energy and vitality, intensity and complexity, great pinosity and drive, with ample tannins backing the flavour but not tough or aggressive as Bendigo tannins can be. The aftertaste is very persistent and harmonious. This is a great wine. I would place it alongside any Burgundy Grand Cru. Very, very impressive” – 98 Points, Huon Hooke

2014 Retrospect Pinot Noir - $188
"Medium-depth brick-red colour with a good ruby centre. The bouquet is showing mellow age to the point of savouriness, with a lot of dried herb, wild thyme, earthy, terrestrial nuances. The palate is full-bodied and rounded, again showing appropriate, if slightly forward, savoury development and endowed with secondary characteristics rather than primary fruit. The tannins are obvious, dry and powdery but not tough or aggressive. There is a little alcohol heat in the aftertaste together with lingering grip. Very good." - 94 Points, Huon Hooke
