Cuvee Aux Antipodes by Prophet’s Rock Pinot Noir 2019


THE VINTAGE – 2018 “Warmest of the last 3 years in fact the Warmest spring/summer of Otago on record, but saved by end of January (snow), In fact February was one of the coolest on record. Harvest was still very early but the cooler month leading into picking helped kept acidity. Picked at start of March. Earliest harvest before any other vintage by 19 days. Huge anomaly vintage. Paul doesn’t feel it’s a lost vintage due to the cooler finish, in fact it was the most floral/red fruit ferment he can remember” – Neil – Francaboutwine

:Complex, detailed and captivating bouquet of Pinot Noir – aromas and flavours of red fruits and wood spices – a seamless connection to earth & mineral layers. The texture is tense and very youthful – all locked up and not quite ready to reveal – but the quiver of spice and tannins with acidity and a core of fruit shows what’s to come. The wine is also very pretty with a rose and perfume scent, some wild dried herb and spice. Decant for service if you can’t wait. Best drinking from 2021 through 2027+” – 98 points – Cameron Douglas,

“A collaboration wine between Burgundian Francois Millet and Prophet’s Rock’s Paul Pujol. This makes a very harmonious impression on the nose with red cherries, spice, hazelnuts, red florals, fresh tobacco and light earthy nuances. The palate has a very neatly coiled and layered feel with tannins that unfurl and lift the finish. Red-cherry and pastry flavors are delivered in vibrant mode. Some blueberries, too. Drink or hold” – 96 points – Nick Stock –
