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 region.
Vinified in a traditional fashion using open fermenters, hand plunging, natural yeasts and 15 months in French oak. The warm 2012 vintage produced wines of plushness and elegance. A soft and supple wine, lots of broad rich fruit with a good depth of flavour. Lovely acidity and fine tannins give the wine great length and structure whilst also making it very approachable on release.
