At latitude 45 degrees south, Central Otago is the southernmost wine region in the world. Snow topped mountains, rocky ranges and dry tussock hills, a place of climatic extremes, bitterly cold winters, parched soils and discouragingly poor fertility. Designed by the angels in heaven for sublime and stupendous vintages of Pinot Noir. At the very epicentre of the most desirable confluence in Central Otago microclimes is Nanny Goat Vineyard. Conspicuous for her serious weight of fruit, splendid structure and chewy, textural palate, Nanny Goat make a magnificently endowed style, offering the understated power and presence to accompany gourmet game sausages, meaty Mediterranean braises or char grilled rib... That's perfect for porterhouse»
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..

Years of grazing on the Majella property enriched the soils and prepared the ground for viticulture. The Majella team still run a few thousand Merino wethers and raise a few hundred prime lambs. Re established as a vineyard in 1968, Majella sold their first tonnage of fruit to Wynn's Coonawarra Estate in 1980. Since then, the Majella vineyards have been the source of the most highly prized Coonawarra grapes for many well regarded national brands. The very best of Majella's fruit, the pick of crop, is retained for the estate's own label. A slightly greater proportion of Cabernet to Shiraz, The Musician is a generously complex Coonawarra wine that's approachable and engaging immediately upon release.
Deep scarlet in colour. Vibrant, unmistakably Coonawarra to smell and taste, bursting with flavours of blackcurrant, mulberry and herbs, fine, elegant and juicy in the mouth. Musician is quite low in oak, just a smidge of vanillin showing faintly on the mid palate, the brambly, blackcurrant flavours demand all the attention. Fine silky tannins integrate with the fruit and minimal oak treatment to produce an approachable well rounded wine of extended length.
