Rocky Point Central Otago Pinot Noir 2015

04-Jul-2016
Prophet’s Rock winemaker Paul Pujol has had considerably more latitude to express the styles of Pinot Noir he wishes to make since the new ownership of the company took place at the start of 2013. While essentially he has a more European take on making his wines, so that they are not overly fruity, and they possess greater textural qualities, Paul has been able to provide a clearer delineation between the premium ‘Prophet’s Rock’ label and the second tier ‘Rock Point’ wine. The former has greater depth, complexity and longevity, and reflects the ‘Home’ vineyard on Chinaman’s Terrace in the Bendigo sub-region. The ‘Rocky Point’ is more accessible, and reflects the company’s schist-soiled ‘Rocky Point’ vineyard, lower in altitude, but also in Bendigo. Here, I review the new release Rocky Point Pinot Noir 2015. It may be the best released to date. www.prophetsrock.co.nz
