2016 Rocky Point Pinot Noir

The second wine of legendary Prophet's Rock

FWDC 91/100 Sam Kim

Description

Now with a cool new label in 2016, Rocky Point is crafted by internationally experienced NZ winemaker Paul Pujol who has presided over all Prophet's Rock wines since returning home from his travels circa 2008. Their Bendigo vineyards consistently yield fruit with dense, dark flavour, superb tannins and benchmark mineral freshness on display in this 2016 release. Hand-picked fruit, indigenous ferment and use of quality French barrels are central to this Pinot that entirely over delivers for the price.

Smells

Black cherry, thyme underpinned with complex floral aromas.

Tastes

Dense, charming, sweet Otago black cherry fruit with an attractive tangy plum infusion with hints of liquorice. Nicely contrasted by complex notes of wild thyme, nutmeg/cinnamon, and spicy oak with an endearing suggestion of Black Forest Gateaux attack on the finish. It has the weight and complexity to drink well through 2020+
