2015 Mount Edward, Muirkirk Vineyard Pinot Noir, Otago
Joe Czerwinski 93/100
Muirkirk vineyard is situated on Felton Road in Bannockburn on a gentle north west sloping corner. Otago has a continental climate, unlike most of New Zealand which is maritime. With tiny rainfall and big diurnal temperature variations it's the perfect climate to make quality grapes. Duncan Forsyth took the estate organic in 2006. No filtration or fining.
