    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..

    Kirrihill work closely with the most dedicated Clare Valley growers to ensure the fruit meets the standards required to make the highest quality wine. Parcels are all picked and vinified separately in open top fermenters, while being treated to regular pumpovers, followed by a course of drain and returns to maximise the extraction of colour, flavour and tannin from skins. The batches are pressed off into a selection of French and American oak for malolactic and ten months maturation, softening the tannins and enhancing complexity. Parcels are then assembled into the finished wine, the aim being to achieve a balance of terroir, while buiding structure and achieving true elegance.
    A vibrant deep red colour. Classic Clare Cabernet characters of blackcurrant and crushed violet on the nose, supported by enticing cedary notes, black bean and hints of hoi sin sauce. The palate is chock full of plum, mulberry and dark cherry. A rich, full bodied wine whose fruit characters are balanced by delicious chocolate oak, velvety tannins and a long, satisfying finish.
