Mount Dottrel Central Otago Pinot Noir 2011

14-Sep-2018

Mount Dottrel is the second label of Mitre Rocks, the Central Otago wine venture of Simon and Roy McCallum. They have 42 ha of vineyard at Parkburn on the Cromwell-Wanaka Road, the vines planted in 2000, giving them their first vintage for 2005. James Dicey of Grape Vision tends to the viticulture, and the wines have been made at VinPro.

In 2011, rather than having two tiers, usually made by barrel selection, the McCallums and winemaker Carol Bunn decided to make the wine all as a single vineyard wine under the Mount Dottrel label. I reviewed the wine in March last year, and I do so again here. The bottle I have just tasted has put on richness over that I looked at in 2017 and generally looks better. www.mitrerocks.co.nz
