Grown in the Upper Yarra at Mandala Wine's premium Pinot Noir Yarra Junction vineyard. "The Prophet" is an aromatic blend of cherries and crushed violets, subtle brambly characters and hints of mocha mixed with plums. A finely textured palate with a red and blue berry profile, there's a slight smoky impact on the finish.
The Pinot fruit was hand-pruned and hand-harvested for intact of the berries, cold soaked for four days and inoculated with Burgundian yeast to ferment in half tonne batches. Transferred to 50% new French oak for 12 months maturation prior to blending and bottling.
