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..

Eventually disgorged to true Methode traditionnelle, Majella is served with the ultimate indulgence, an inclusion of Reserve Vintage Coonawarra Port and dosage liqueur, crowned and resealed.

Majella originally established their Shiraz vineyards in the late 1960s after an understanding that the Hardy's Wine Company would source their production. By the 1980s, Majella were looking for other clients and their fruit wound up in some of the most memorable vintages of Wynns Coonawarra. The quality of Majella's harvest was always paramount but it was not until the 1990s that the pick of the Shiraz crop was set aside for a superior small batch sparkling. Bottle fermented for two or more years on sedimentery lees, followed by the traditional disgorgement, liqueur d’expédition and dosage of rare vintage Port.
Midnight purple hues, effervescence and persitence of elegant bead. Spiced liquorice nose, brambles and bright currants, suet and caraway, carob and cherry ripe. A powerful palate of intensely mouthfilling flavours, layers of fruit are supported by its luxurious creamyness, the savouryness of leather, smokey bacon, olive and espresso. Majella brings out the best in all good food, savoury or sweet, it drinks blissfully just on its own.
