Description

Prophet’s Rock is a small Bendigo vineyard with a reputation hugely disproportionate to its size. Overlooking Lake Dunstan, it’s a landscape strewn with rocky schist and the tumble-down remains of old gold miners’ cottages. Part of Paul’s Old World winemaking philosophy was shaped by working vintages in Europe. In Jura he discovered Vin de Paille or ‘Straw Wine’, a method to produce rich dessert wines by using dried grapes. After the grapes were picked, they were dried in the loft of the vineyard barn. The dried grapes were whole-bunch pressed, and the tiny yield was fermented slowly over 8 months, using the indigenous ‘wild’ yeasts of the vineyard.
Smells
Fabulously intense. Peach, melon and citrus notes with traces of beeswax.
Tastes
A power packed palate of peaches and nectarines, with pink grapefruit zest and floral hints. Rich and viscous but with cleansing acidity. Drink between 2021 – 2032 with duck liver pate.
