2016 Mount Edward Muirkirk Vineyard Pinot Noir, Central Otago
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. No filtration or fining, deposits may form. An elegant wine, 2016 brings a some smoothness and warmth, whilst still delicate, overall always a wine for people who enjoyed grace over concentration.
In Appearance: Bright ruby hue.
On the Nose: Sweetly fragrant bouquet shows red/black cherry, dried herb, earthy mushroom and warm spice aromas with hints of cedar and vanilla.
On the Palate: A soft and supple wine, lots of 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.
Holding this wine for 4-5 years will start to see a change.
