Weingut über: Pinot Noir MacMuir

-- Weingut: MacMuir is the first new Pinot Noir for us since Cornish Point with the 2007 vintage and Calvert in 2006. The land was part of the original Calvert holding that we began leasing in 2001 when it was a hay paddock and nut orchard. After several years of working on the soils while pestering Owen, he eventually relented and agreed to sell it. We commenced planting in 2012 to a higher density, improved row orientation and some new clonal selections of 828 and 943, along with our own carefully selected Abel, and some other favourites. While it’s just a few hundred metres west of our Calvert vineyard, it impressed from the first harvest with its deeper and richer soils always providing an intensity of fruit and plushness. This has contributed impressively to the Bannockburn Pinot Noir for many vintages now, but its unique voice deserved to be heard alone. The name MacMuir comes from Nigel’s family: his mother was of the Muir clan, so he is a MacMuir: the son of a Muir. The Muir name is long associated with Bannockburn with half the subregion and two other vineyards bearing the name (probably because the ancestors of the Muir clan fought at the battle of Bannockburn).Dark fruit and cocoa lead this saturating and brooding bouquet. The palate is similarly in- tense, a different iteration of Felton Road, but it nevertheless has the openness and immediate silky appeal. Sandalwood, dark chocolate and cranberry lingers on a sustained and immensely impressive finish. Certainly no stage fright in this new performer!
