Grown in the Upper Yarra at our premium Pinot Noir Yarra Junction vineyard, "The Prophet" is an aromatic blend of black cherry and ripened pink raspberries. An essence of crushed violets and seductive vanilla underpins the fresh herb notes of sage and thyme on the palate. Well-integrated oak blends with red fruits and balanced warm, spicy notes.
The Pinot fruit was hand-pruned and hand-harvested for intact of the berries, cold soaked for four days and inoculated with Burgundian yeast to ferment in half tonne batches. Transferred to 50% new French oak for 12 months maturation prior to blending and bottling. 13.5% alc/vol. This wine was rated 93 points by James Halliday.
