Elegant og yderst kompleks vin fra en exceptionel årgang. Læs vinmager Duncan Forsyths egen beskrivelse af denne sublime enkeltmarks Pinot Noir fra marken 'Muirkirk':
"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, 2011 brings a lighter more delicate style than warmer years. Defintly a wine for people who enjoy grace over concentration. We have held this wine back for later release, by doing so the wine has gone from pure fruit with light tannins to a savoury and more herb driven wine, lots of funk developing. A super interesting and more old world than new world style pinot."
96 points - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit: ”...seductive and fragrant … perfectly framed..”
92 point - Parker/The Wine Advocate:
"Pale to medium ruby with a hint of purple, the 2011 Muirkirk Pinot Noir has an earthy / herbal laced nose over a core of cranberry, Bing cherries and wild strawberries. Medium bodied with a fresh, red berry character with plenty of earthiness, it gives a long herb laced finish."
