Description

Prophet's Rock winemaker Paul Pujol makes Riesling quite differently than most NZ wineries, his technique heavily influenced by his experiences in Alsace. The general theme is time - with long, slow, wild fermentation and aging on lees in tank, before 2 years in bottle before release. The famously upfront aromatics of Riesling are toned down in favour of amazing texture and weight, a little residual sugar giving fatness too.

Smells

Nuance and subtlety are the order of the day, with honeycomb, white flowers, lemon and white peach notes.

Tastes

Fat and very satisfying at first, then a wave of chalky texture, creamy lees and fresh acid promenade across the palate, the honeyed tropical fruit and almost caramel notes lingering long on the finish. Full-bodied by Riesling standards, this is reminiscent of the Hugel Grossi Laue from Alsace, a stunning vintage of one of the most rare and sought after white wines in the country. Enjoy now to 2025.
