Gold Medal & 95/100 – New World Wine Awards 2020
Prophets Rock are regarded as one of the best producers of Pinot Gris in New Zealand. Rocky Point is their ‘other label’ and only produced when there is enough fruit (this is the first vintage since 2014) Made in the same manner as the premium Pinot Gris with handpicked fruit, indigenous fermentation and dry.
Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"This earlier release Pinot Gris is a great introduction to our approach and house style with Pinot Gris. This aromatic Pinot Gris has great freshness and will match well with a range of food. The fruit for this wines comes from selected parcels on our Kopuwai and Rocky Point vineyards. Meticulous viticulture and favourable climates combine to produce grapes with great flavour and concentration."
New World Wine Awards 2020 (2020 Vintage)
"From Central Otago’s Pisa and Bendigo regions, here’s a wine that’s a terrific match with a double cream cheese on crackers spiced up with a touch of honeycomb, or pork and coriander stuffed dumplings. Pale and superbly made with an intriguing spice line through the palate. Dry with bracing acidity and medium weight. A lovely texture and long finish."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2020 (2020 Vintage)
"This is fabulously fruited and inviting on the nose showing honeydew melon, fresh pear and floral characters, leading to a succulent palate that’s silky and flowing. The wine offers terrific fruit purity backed by refreshing acidity, making it delightfully drinkable. At its best: now to 2023."
