Prophet's Rock Central Otago Pinot Gris 2021

4.000000000 star rating 1 Reviews
Fresh, full pinot gris from one of New Zealand's great winemakers. A wonderful balance of opulence and tension, this has focused acidity and a weighty mid-palate. Paul Pujol is the winemaker and is eminently qualified for the role with previous stints at the distinguished house of Kuentz-Bas in Alsace and pinot noir specialist Lemelson in Oregon.

Prophet's Rock Vineyard

Prophet’s Rock is a tiny, quality-focused producer in Central Otago on New Zealand’s South Island. The portfolio of wines focuses on three aromatic varietals: riesling, pinot gris and pinot noir with grapes coming from only estate-owned vineyards. Paul Pujol is the winemaker and is eminently qualified for the role with previous stints at the distinguished house of Kuentz-Bas in Alsace and pinot noir specialist Lemelson in Oregon. Not surprisingly, the whites in particular pay homage to Pujol’s time in Alsace with their considerable texture and rich concentration. The pinot noir is grown in an area called Bendigo, a fast expanding sub-region of Otago. The warmer and drier climate here produces a style of pinot which is fuller and more structured than the rest of the region.

Recently Paul Pujol has been involved in a separate project for The Society, having come across a small-family owned pinot noir vineyard called Mount Koinga in the Pisa sub-region of Otago. From this exciting grape source Pujol crafts a fine flavoured and silky pinot bottled under the Mount Koinga label which he makes exclusively for The Wine Society.

The Scotsman

Off-dry version of pinot gris grown on schist, quartz and clay soils. Loved the exuberant fruit, rich weight and sharp crisp acidity.
