Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"It gets the same meticulous treatment in the vineyard as our top Pinot Noir, and our yields are extremely low, creating a concentrated expression of our unique site. Averaging only 300 cases per vintage, our Dry Riesling is a rare find. The vinification is heavily influenced by Paul’s time in Alsace, where use of wild yeast, multiple small vessels and long ageing are the norm. After lengthy slow ferments, the various components are aged on their yeast lees before bottling. The wine is cellared for at least two years before release.

White gold in colour the Prophet’s Rock 2014 displays floral and citrus aromas and flavours with a strong underlying minerality. These aromas are echoed on the concentrated, crisp and lingering palate. The freshness and aromatics make this a great food wine which will harmonize with a diverse range of fish, seafood, salads and white meats. Fantastic acid structure and concentration mean that this wine will also reward careful cellaring for those with patience over the next 5-10 years from vintage."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2014 Vintage)
"Estate-grown and hand-picked at Pisa, in the Cromwell Basin, the classy 2014 vintage was fermented with indigenous yeasts and lees-aged in old oak barrels. Light lemon/green, it has a scented, citrusy bouquet, revealing good complexity. Medium-bodied, it has rich, vibrant lemon, grapefruit and lime flavours, a bare hint of sweetness (8 grams/litre of residual sugar), good acid spine and a finely poised, lasting finish. A wine of strong personality, it is delicious now, but should also be long-lived."
93/100 C​ameron Douglas MS, September 2015 (2014 Vintage)
"Ripe sweet citrus fruits bouquet with aromas of mandarins and lemons, red apples and apricot. With just noticeable residual sweetness this wine is all about texture and length; flavours of citrus and apricot, white peach, lemon and mandarin then honeysuckle – it has great length and finish. Delicious!"
