Winemaker Paul Pujol refined his trade working in France’s classical wine regions, the Languedoc, Sancerre and, crucially, Burgundy and Alsace. His traditional aesthetic — respectful, patient, vineyard-focused – resonates in Prophet Rock's wines, and frees them to express the unique tenor of our sites. Each glass, then, embodies both the old world and the new, past and present unified by place. At Prophet’s Rock, they are committed to sustainable wine production. Their vines sit comfortably in the natural environment that surrounds them, and they treat these surroundings with care. Prophet’s Rock is a member of Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand.

The wine's journey starts in the vines, where low yielding fruit is grown with great concentration and flavour, followed by harvesting done by hand. Prophet's Rock Pinot Gris and Riesling are slowly and gently whole-bunch pressed, then undergoes long slow ferments in barrel and aging on yeast lees prior to bottling just before the next harvest. They farm their aromatic whites to the same high standard in the vineyard as their top Pinot Noir, and take time through all aspects of production ensuring the wine they release are the best reflection of the site it can be. In barrel, the wines go through spontaneous malolactic fermentation and receive extended élevage. This is a dry style with bright aromatics and great concentration. The freshness and texture make it an easy food match.  

Attractive crushed stones, grapefruit and lemon peel with some light, lees-derived, pastry-like notes, too. The palate has impressively fresh and lively flavors with bright peaches and lemons holding long and smooth. Layered yet piercing textural style here. Drink now. - JamesSuckling.com
