Rocky Point Central Otago Pinot Noir 2016

12-May-2017
Rocky Point is the secondary label of Prophet’s Rock, a Central Otago producer with two vineyards in the Bendigo sub-region. The ‘Home’ vineyard on the Chinaman’s Terraces produces Pinot Noirs with depth, complexity and longevity, whereas the ‘Rocky Point’ vineyard, more southerly situated and nearer Lake Dunstan, on schist soil lends greater approachability. Winemaker Paul Pujol has a distinctly European approach to the winemaking and the wines made to date have been of high quality and provoke plenty of interest and thought. I have found the Rocky Point Pinot Noir growing in consistency and quality over recent vintages as Paul has become more familiar with the vineyard which was acquired for the 2013 vintage. Here, I review the new 2016 Rocky Point Pinot Noir. www.prophetsrock.co.nz
