Note From Nigel

“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, later, a 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 Burgundy 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 vineyard has contributed impressively to the Bannockburn Pinot Noir for many vintages now, but this unique voice deserved to be heard alone. The name MacMuir comes from my family: my mother was of the Muir clan, so I’m a MacMuir: the son of a Muir. But the Muir name is long associated with Bannockburn township with half the sub-region and two other vineyards bearing the name. This is possibly because the ancestors of the Muir clan fought at the battle of Bannockburn. MacMuir has been priced at where we think the overall quality sits: between the other single vineyard wines and the considerably older vines, not to mention reputation, of the single block wines. It is a formidable addition to the range. “

Often rightly considered the finest producers of Central Otago Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, this low intervention, gravity fed, organic and biodynamic winery is all about hands-off purity, quality and class. Felton Road dates back to 1991, with the planting of the Elms Vineyard on Felton Road, in the Bannockburn district of Central Otago. However lauded the Chardonnays and Rieslings may be, the international profile of Felton Road is justly upheld by the series of vineyard specific Pinot Noirs which express the nuances and character of each individual site.

Vineyard notes: "Since 2002 the vineyards have been managed organically and biodynamically. In 2010 all four vineyards were awarded full Demeter certification and in 2020 they were all also certified by BioGro. Pruning is carried out to leave desired bud numbers thus ensuring moderate controllable yields and to create an even, light penetrable canopy. Irrigation is usually necessary during the later dry summer months. Soil moisture levels are carefully monitored and water is applied only when necessary to maintain appropriate soil moisture levels. All grapes are carefully hand picked, keeping separate any quality differences within blocks due to clones, rootstocks and viticultural trials."
