Prophet's Rock Cuvée Aux Antipodes Blanc 2019
Each glass of Prophet’s Rock embodies the old world and the new, past and present, place and practices.
Prophet's Rock Cuvée Aux Antipodes Blanc is a collaboration between Prophet’s Rock winemaker Paul Pujol and esteemed French winemaker François Millet from Chambolle-Musigny, Burgundy. Former winemaker at Comte George de Vogüé for 35 vintages, François continues to make wine in Burgundy with his family under ‘François Millet et Fils’ and with us in New Zealand.
The grapes were sourced from the small one hectare Chardonnay block on our Kopuwai Delta vineyard, located in the Pisa sub-region of Central Otago. This site has a mix of glacial and alluvial soil. Meticulous viticulture and the site’s low-elevation help to ensure full ripeness and concentration. Cellaring will reward collectors over the next 10+ years from vintage.
…One of the more profound Chardonnays I’ve tasted from Central Otago. - Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate, 95 Points
