ProphetsRock Pinot Noir Central Otago 2007 14%
A: Red and ruby core with hints of garnet at the rim.
N: A youthful and integrating bouquet. The smell of Central Otago is very much at the core of this wine – wild thyme, schist and wild flowers followed by the Pinosity that underpins it all: a meld of cherry and raspberry fruits interwoven with the brown spices and toasty edges of oak: a seductive wine with a gentle power.
P: Every bit that the nose suggests, with a lot of texture from the tannins – quite fine yet still integrating, with velvet edges. The finish is long and seesaws between the fruit and oak messages. A lovely wine, highly recommended.
