Grown to the frigid climes of Central Otago, the vines at Prophet's Rock were established 1999 to the most auspicious sites in the nether regions around the ancient goldfields of Bendigo Creek. Challenging aspects with breathtaking views of Cromwell Basin and Pisa Ranges, these are places defined by their fortuitous soils and favourable climes, tiny parcels of vine capable of just a few hundred cases each vintage, picked for their confluence of growing conditions and husbanded by a devout cadre. The winemaking is decidedly French, small vessels and wild yeasts, followed by an extended term on sedimentary lees for opulence. Invigorated by the warmth of alluvial pebbles and infused by the minerality of quartz schists, the opportune vines yield a small range of wines, made by environmental purists in the old fashioned way, crafted to the most uncompromising standards and branded as Prophet's..

The moderate rainfalls at Argiano serve to barely nourish the vines, promoting healthier ripening while achieving greater concentration and flavours in the finished wine. Neighbouring Monte Amiata is one of Tuscany's highest peas, providing shelter for the fruit and protecting the vines from bad weather. Grapes are all hand picked into shallow crates for transport to the wineworks, individually sorted and transferred to vat fermenters. The clear juices are vinified on skins for two or three weeks for optimum extraction. Upon completion of malolactic, Montalcino is matured in a selection of prior use French oak barrels and larger format Slovenian oak casks before bottling the following autumn.
Intense ruby red colour. Peppery, herbal and vanilla nose, black cherry and jam aromas. Medium bodied with good concentration of fruit in the mid palate, elegant and well balanced with captivating flavours of red berries and violet, menthol and earth, all characteristic of Argiano's unique terroir. A generous wine with smooth and velvety tannins that will please all Sangiovese lovers.
