Mount Edward Muirkirk Vineyard 2016
Muirkirk vineyard is situated on Felton Road in Bannockburn on a gentle north west sloping corner. This wine is about single site expression, a small limited parcel that shows the true characters of our vineyard within one of Central Otago’s greatest sub regions.
Muirkirk Pinot Noir gives you a very textural wine, plenty of breadth and depth, with slightly darker flavours associated with bannockburn yet with elegance and lightness that our Mount Edward house style brings. An elegant wine, 2016 brings a some smoothness and warmth, whilst still delicate, overall always a wine for people who enjoyed grace over concentration
Holding this wine for 4-5 years will start to see a change pure fruit with light tannins to a savoury and more herb driven wine with a super interesting and more old than new world style pinot developing
No filtration or fining, deposits may form
