Prophet’s Rock Olearia Pinot Noir 2021

$90.00

Vibrant red and dark cherry, hints of boysenberry and layers of baking spices are in perfect harmony in this seamless wine. The dusty, integrated tannins add structure to the elegant middle palate and the lingering finish is filled with mineral and red fruit notes.

Schist rock is very predominant in the Rocky Point Vineyard where Olearia is sourced from, studded with clay parcels. Very high mineral content thus low vigour. In fact some of this vineyard had to be re-populated with Riesling simply because the Pinot Noir couldn’t survive in such soils. Makes for wines with a lot of energy, bright, crunchy, tight tannins compared to their Home Vineyard site further North in Bendigo.

The grapes were handpicked and destemmed with a high proportion of whole berries going into the fermenters. Wild ferment. Just one pigeage per vintage. The wine spent 17 months in French oak barrels of which 30% were new. Bottled unfined, unfiltered.
