“Really much more Burgundian than New Zealand” – Jancis Robinson
Prophet’s Rock was first planted in 1999 in what is a breathtaking part of Bendigo in the Cromwell Basin and one of the few places in the world where pedogenic limestone is found (see ABOUT page for a detailed brief). Paul Pujol is the winemaker and part owner since the first vintage in 2005 and has spent time working overseas in France at both Alsace for Kuentz-Bar and Comte de Vogue in Burgundy so has a superb grounding in aromatic textured whites and one of the greatest expressions of Pinot Noir.
What’s exciting about these wines is that they are all wild fermented, very low yields per wine, and very little intervention. They hold the wines back to ensure the wines have enough time on lees (particularly the Gris) and in barrel for the Pinot Noir.
