Description

We're not sure we have ever been so excited about the release of a New Zealand wine ever... The circumstances are truly unprecedented. A collaborative winemaking venture between the master and the student: Francois Millet from Domaine Comtes Georges de Vogue and Paul Pujol from Prophet's Rock. Francois has never made wine outside of Chambolle in Burgundy, but has become so enamoured by Prophet's Rock's Central Otago terroir that he agreed to make his interpretation of the vineyard. The result must be tasted to be believed... a wine that will literally take your breath away, Cuvee Aux Antipodes is unmistakably Central Otago, and yet, completely unlike any wine that has ever been made in this country. Francois' famously delicate touch on his legendary Musigny Grand Cru is in evidence here - expect this wine to be the most collectible wine ever made in NZ. Only 293 cases were made - Pinot lovers prepare to be blown away!

Smells

The most deliriously perfumed and satisfying nose, showing abundant, exotic florals, an array of plum, cherry and spices, with beautifully judged oak hinting at just a kiss of vanilla.

Tastes

Things only get better on the palate, where the fruit profile is definitively Otago, but yet the mouthfeel and tannin extraction is somehow all Chambolle Musigny, with the red fruits and prettiness that entails. Seriously complex, unbelievably rich, yet strikingly delicate, this is a masterclass of Pinot Noir from one of the world's Grand Masters. No hurry, but no need to wait either... this will be great from release and for 10-15 years hence.
