Elegant, complex and varietal. Aromas of orange peel and baked pear, some lees and gentle baking spice layers, blossoms, apples and quince. - Cameron Douglas Founded in 1999 by Paul Pujol, the two stunning vineyards that combine to make Prophet's Rock's Pinot Gris are located in the Bendigo and Pisa sub-regions of Central Otago, facing each other across Lake Dunstan. White gold in colour, it displays floral and citrus aromas and flavours with a strong underlying minerality. These are echoed on the concentrated, crisp and lingering palate. The freshness and aromatics make this a great food wine. The fantastic acid structure and concentration mean that this wine will also reward careful cellaring over the next 5-10 years from vintage.

More aromatic and ethereal than the previous vintage with similar pear, apple and yeast lees flavours. A pretty wine from a hot vintage.

Cameron Douglas MS

Elegant, complex and varietal. Aromas of orange peel and baked pear, some lees and gentle baking spice layers, blossoms, apples and quince. On the palate - a dry wine with a fresh pure fruit palate laced with flavours that reflect the nose along with a gentle silken texture and lengthy complex finish. An excellent example, well made and ready to enjoy from today and through 2024.
