Prophet's Rock Olearia Central Otago Pinot Noir (2019)

From the highest block on Rocky Point Vineyard at Bendigo, the notably graceful 2019 vintage (5*) was matured for 17 months in French oak barrels (35 per cent new). Deep ruby, it is a stylish, sweet-fruited and savoury red, with strong, vibrant cherry, plum and spice flavours, full of youthful vigour, and a silky-textured, lingering finish. Best drinking 2024+.
