2014 Home Vineyard Pinot Noir - Prophet's Rock
Ripe raspberry, acacia leaf, bruised cherry. Bilberry, spice box, tree bark covered in morning dew. Fragrant lily flowers and fennel, blackberry stem and cold stone. Lifted fruit & floral aromatics waft delicately above a cornucopia of earthy, savory, & sweet spice. Like laying in a strawberry patch late at night and gazing into into the depths of the star-filled sky. This 2014 Home Vineyard Pinot Noir by Prophet's Rock is endlessly expansive other-worldly goodness bottled up and brought down to earth.
Located in the rugged Bendigo sub-region of New Zealand's famed Central Otago, Prophet's Rock is an estate only winery that farms just two beautiful premier vineyards. Their emphasis is on minimal-intervention & terroir driven wine that express the character of their unique world-class location. This flagship bottling, coming solely from their Home Vineyard, is a near-transcendent expression of what Prophet's Rock and Central Otago are capable of. Using the medium of Pinot Noir they have created a wine that is somehow familiar yet exotic and cosmic yet terrestrial. This wine is nothing like the Pinot of California or Oregon, and quite frankly not even Burgundy - it is completely unique and distinctly New Zealand. Fantastic!
