Product Notes

Prophet's Rock Pinot Gris is a premium, dry white wine produced in Central Otago, New Zealand. This Pinot Gris is all about balance; it combines fresh citrus fruit and floral aromas with a hint of spice on the palate. The fruit is beautifully enhanced by the wine's natural acidity, while the hint of spice is a reflection of its unique terroir. Prophet's Rock Pinot Gris is an elegant wine that can be enjoyed with a wide range of cuisine, but is particularly well-paired with seafood, chicken and creamy pasta dishes. It's a perfect accompaniment for an elegant dinner party or a relaxed evening with friends.

Tasting Notes

This Pinot Gris amazingly consistent in style and quality, sweet pear and red apple aromas with hints of white spice and white flowers. The palate is medium in body with concentrated fruit notes and finishes with a splash of acidity, followed by crunchy mineral and light phenolics adding to the complexity and giving structure to the wine. Well balanced and delicious as always!

About the Winery

Prophet's Rock

The New Zealand wine brand of Prophet’s Rock is considered to be one of the most premium categories in the Central Otago region. It was established in 1999 with the sole aim of creating unique wines that were never tasted before in this region. Today, the Prophet’s Rock label makes use of only three grape varietals – Riesling, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir, grown in its own estate, to create its wines.

The grapes are sourced from two vineyards located in the region of Bendigo – Prophet’s Rock Home Vineyard and the Rocky Point. The flavor and character of the resultant wines speak volumes about the rich experience of the winemaker at Prophet’s Rock. Paul Pujol, the chief winemaker at this estate, joined the group after many years of working at some of the iconic wine regions in France, such as Burgundy, Alsace, Sancerre and more. Therefore, the white wines created under the Prophet’s Rock label will bear quite a few resemblances to the ones that you would find in Alsace.

The sub-region of Bendigo is considered as one of the best in New Zealand to grow the Pinot varietals. These grapes need a warm & dry climate to develop into grapes with full-fledged structure and intensity. Bendigo caters to exactly these needs of the Pinots. Some of the popular wines from this label are:

Retrospect Pinot Noir - Made from Pinot Noir grown in the Home Vineyard located in the sub-region of Bendigo

Cuvee Aux Antipodes Pinot Noir - Made from Pinot Noir grown in the Home Vineyard

Prophet’s Rock Pinot Gris - Made from Pinot Gris grapes grown in the Home Vineyard and Rocky Point Vineyards; considered as the trademark white wine of Central Otago as the wine represents the quality of the soil and temperature of this place.
