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.

This is fermented with wild yeast and spends 17 months in French oak. Brooding and focused, this has a core of sweet black cherry fruit with some blackberry, together with notes of iodine, salty spiciness ...
This is fermented with wild yeast and spends 17 months in French oak. Brooding and focused, this has a core of sweet black cherry fruit with some blackberry, together with notes of iodine, salty spiciness and fine green hints. It’s a little grunty in a nice way, and tends to elegance. A beautiful expression of Central Pinot, finishing juicy and stony. Quite brilliant. 95/100
