Josef Chromy OAM escaped from war torn Czechoslovakia as a penniless 19 year old in 1950, he fled across minefields, evading soldiers and killer dogs, ultimately finding a new home in the lucky country.

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..

Pinot Gris Grigio Martinborough New Zealand
Mature Pinot Gris vines planted to alluvial gravel soils on Martinborough Terrace allow grapes to ripen wonderfully, yielding parcels of powerful, opulent fruit which are treated to barrel fermentation techniques for the creation of a rich, French inspired Pinot Gris. A faithful expression of Martinborough's unique terrior, the touch of residual sugar has enhanced the distinct fruit characters for which Pinot Gris is so renowned. Complete malolactic and lees stirring has enhanced the texture and mouthfeel allowing the juicy palate to match most entree dishes.

Escarpment aim to produce the very best of tomorrow's definitive new world wines. Complexity, texture and structure are key words and motivators. Escarpment was established in 1999 as a joint business venture between Village Roadshow's Robert and Mem Kirby with Larry and Sue McKenna. Situated just 5 kilometres east of Martinborough village, twenty four hectares of distinctive alluvial gravel, terraced land stretches out along the banks of the Huangarua River. Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris represent a substantial proportion of the white grape selection. While the majority of these grapes are grown on site, Escarpment also sources components of Pinot Gris from the local Station Bush property.
Light apricot hue. Bouquet of florals, nuttyness and ripe, complex fruit. A palate of ripe pears and white nectarine, long, textural and delightfully soft texture before a lingering and memorable, commanding finish. The drying French, adults only styling enhances the generosity of flavour and textural richness, a fine match to delicately prepared white flesh fishes.
