Huon Hooke's Perfect NZ Pinot: "I would place it alongside any Burgundy grand cru."

New Limited Release:

Prophet's Rock Cuvée aux Antipodes Pinot Noir 2018

Today we are shining the spotlight on one of the greatest Pinot's to come out of New Zealand. The Prophet's Rock Cuvée aux Antipodes Pinot Noir "is a great wine. I would place it alongside any Burgundy grand cru. Very, very impressive!" - Huon Hooke's review of last year's vintage. 

As this has just been released no official reviews are available as yet but here is winemaker François Millet's remarks on his latest creation.

“I would quote Jean-Claude Debussy: "Music is silence between the Notes”, Meaning empathy and respect to emphasise the beauty of the terroir and bring relief to the wines.(the peaks are the notes and silences the valleys). “We have this angel, the pinot noir, and the wine is the voice of the angel. When you use too much extraction, too much oak, too many additions and manipulations, you obscure the voice of the angel.”
