Prophet's Rock Dry Riesling 2019
To have both power and grace sounds very noble. Well that’s f*cken great Riesling for you. And there’s no truer kiwi example than Prophet’s Rock Dry Riesling. Pretty, delicate aromatics with a bright core of stone and citurs fruit, and linear, bracing freshness. It’s noble indeed.
Winemaker Paul Pujol remembers the first time he saw snow on the ground in November at Prophet Rock’s Bendigo vineyards in Central Otago. The adage that the greatest wines come from marginal climates really plays out here. Having honed his craft with European legends (Maison Kuentz-Bas and Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé), Paul’s sophisticated expressions of this beautiful and extreme part of the world are among New Zealand’s best.
