Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"The grapes were sourced from the two Prophet’s Rock estate vineyards in the Bendigo sub-region of Central Otago. This wine is principally from Rocky Point Vineyard is home to some of the steepest blocks in Central Otago, elegant vines grow on top of an underlay of schist rock providing high mineraltity and spice to the grapes whilst above the surface we see an abundance of wild thyme.
Brilliant ruby in colour the Rocky Point 2018 shows bright red berry, cherry, floral and spice aromas on the nose leading on to a smooth velvety palate. Here the rich fruit flavours are complemented by spice, mineral and dried herb notes leading on to a long rich finish. A versatile food wine that will complement a wide range of cuisine, this wine is a great match with lamb, game and salmon and will continue to provide great enjoyment over the next 4-8 years."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"It is fabulously fruited and gorgeously expressed on the nose showing Black Doris plum, cherry, violet and toasted nut aromas, leading to a succulent palate that is wonderfully weighted and flavoursome. The wine offers terrific fruit purity and vibrancy, as well as elegance and structure, finishing long and silky. At its best: now to 2023."
