Andrew Nugent grew up next door to the great historical wineworks at Penfolds Magill. He honed his craft as viticulturalist and vigneron amongst the illustrious wineries of old McLaren Vale. In the 1990s, Nugent planted new vines at Woodside along Bird In Hand Road, on the site of an ancient gold mine, a godsend of fortuitously fertile soils and magnificent mesoclimes for stellar quality Adelaide Hills wine. Bird In Hand have since amassed a breathtaking tally of international accolades for the unrivalled excellence of their superlative vintages, wonderfully small batch releases, with the magnificence of structure, seamlessness and immaculacy of fruit, to enthuse curio and cognescenti alike...

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..

Grapes are crushed and treated to an air bag press in the protective presence of SO2. Enzyme is added and the juices cold settled over the course of a week before being racked off settled solids into fermenters and inoculated to choice yeasts. A long, cool vinification, pressings and free run are separately fermented, assembled back into the free runs for fining and cold stabilisation. Fermented to dry at less than a gram of sugar per litre, Tar & Roses is fashioned to a food friendly style of crisp fruit freshness and enhanced varietal complexity.
Pale gold hues. Lifted bouquet, overflowing with orange and quince blossom, hints of mint and thyme. An impeccably structured palate, lime cordial and apple pie, seasoned by a touch of clove, deliciously mouthfilling, lemon and lime flavours that take you all the way to a crisp, dry, lingering finish, refreshing, graceful yet substantial enough to serve alongside roast pork with the lot.
