Ep 36 The Wines of Central Otago with Paul Pujol from Prophet's Rock
You can download the transcript HERE
In this episode, I am joined by the incredibly talented winemaker Paul Pujol who makes the wines of Prophet's Rock in Central Otago. This episode you will not only learn about the wine region of Central Otago but also Paul's journey chasing harvests around the world including time at Kuentz Bas, Alsace and Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé, Burgundy.
Alsace certainly had the biggest influence on him, so there is quite a big focus on this region.
Learn from a cool climate specialist winemaker how vintages vary and what winemaking techniques he chooses to use.
