The 2021 MacMuir Pinot Noir is the first vintage of this wine. The vineyard is on Felton Road to the west of the Calvert Vineyard and on heavy silt soils. On the seductive and gently reductive nose, there are pomegranate pearls, barley, cherry, poached strawberry, rosehip tea and earthy sweetness. In the mouth, the wine is excellent, full and firm but long and unfurling. A ripe finish gives breadth and intensity. There’s lots going on, and this is a worthy addition to the Felton Road Pinot Noir lineup. 14% alcohol, sealed under screw cap. Erin Larkin, Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The 2021 Pinot Noir MacMuir feels like a work in progress. It's initially a relaxed, fluid style, offering sweet red cherry fruit and showing youthful mocha-like oak, but it is not quite as refined in terms of its tannic quality and togetherness. There's plenty of acidity that ties this together toward a focused, tighten-your-belt one notch kinda finish. Like we're all stuck in a very small space together. Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous
