Our 2022 'The Prophet' Pinot Noir is a wine that's very close to our hearts - and goes down an absolute treat at every kind of dinner party.
With Cherry, plum and raspberry aromas, this wine provides a textured palate, full of complexity and balance. The fruit is wholly sourced from our dedicated Pinot Noir site at Yarra Junction (Clones: 114, 115 and Mv6). It was carefully handpicked and de-stemmed, then inoculated with Burgundian yeast and fermented in open pot vessels for four days. Matured for nine months in French oak. 13% alc/vol.
A bright and complex aromatic profile offers blackberry, wild strawberry, star anise and cranberry along with hints of blue fruit, crushed violet, fresh tobacco and truffle.
A finely structured palate shows both textural generosity and clarity of fruit expression. Red currant, dark cherry and raspberry characters integrate well with supportive oak spice. The refreshing natural acidity gives the wine drive and line leading into a long and persistent finish.
95 Points - Gold - Philip Rich - Halliday Wine Companion 2024
"From a single site in Yarra Junction; 100% whole-berry fermentation in open pot vessels and matured for nine months in French oak (40% new). Deep-ish ruby red. Brambly red fruits, cherry skins, juniper and warm spices can all be found in this alluring and aromatic wine. Quite a bit more depth and concentration than the estate pinot of the same year, the palate is balanced with vibrant acidity and gently grippy and persistent tannins. A lovely wine."
