K&L Notes

Winemaker's notes: "Vinified in a traditional fashion using open fermenters, hand plunging, natural yeasts and 15 months in French oak. Morrison vineyard grows a textural wine built around fine yet lean tannins and delicate fruits. This year we see the wine displaying perfumed aromatics of floral and herbal notes, a sinewy core of both red and dark fruits all over fine grained tannins. The 2011 vintage grew wines that are delicate, supple and long in length. This is not a big concentrated style but a more elegant and restrained wine showing balance, power and finesse. A wine that will reward cellaring 5-10 years minimum. No filtration or fining, deposits may form. Morrison Vineyard is a 12 ha property with a 7.5 hectare vineyard situated on Wanaka Road in the foothills of the Lowburn and Parkburn Terraces, first planted in 1997. The vineyard is comprised of two main soil types, schist based clay over gravels and fine loam over schist based alluvial gravels, elevation 220m. The vineyard is planted with a mixture of the Dijon Pinot Noir clones and cropped at an average of 35 hectolitres per hectare. Farmed using bio-gro certified organic practices."

    Compared to the Muirkirk vineyard, this bottling shows more juicy aromas, with a bright and slightly pungent quality. Flavors of cranberry and pomegranate are high toned, and framed by mellowing (though still firm) tannins. This is delicious Pinot Noir that is beginning to open up and sing. I see why Duncan chooses to re-release these from time to time!
