Description

"This is the inaugural release of our collaboration Chardonnay, Cuvee aux Antipodes Blanc, with Francois Millet from Chambolle-Musigny. The 2018 vintage was the hottest on record in Central Otago, this made picking at the perfect time essential for retaining acidity and structure in the finished wines. The fruit was handpicked on the 1st of March then hand sorted and gently pressed before going straight into barrel for fermentation. Prophet’s Rock uses indigenous yeast for fermentation as we believe this adds complexity and the uniqueness of the site to the wine. Our barrels are all French in origin, in this vintage only one new barrel was used, making the blend 15% new oak. This Chardonnay is elegant, refined and structured with flavours and aromas of white peach, citrus, ripe red apple with floral notes and underlying wet stone minerality. The texture and mouthfeel are second to none and the light touch of oak lingers on the finish." Prophet's Rock
