Mount Dottrel was the second label from Mitre Rocks, now no longer in business. Mitre Rocks vineyard is situated on the lower slopes of Central Otago’s Pisa Range, below the nearby Mitre Rocks formation. The vines grow in glacial schist – low- fertility, alluvial soils typical of the Cromwell Basin. It is a cool climate of continental extremes – hot, dry summers with cool, dry autumns that promote intense flavour development in fruit. The vineyard is intensively and carefully managed by award-winning viticulturists Robin and James Dicey of Grape Vision Ltd. The vines are hand thinned and leaf plucked from low-density vine plantings of Pinot Noir clones 5, 6, 115, 667 and 777 under the direction of award winning winemaker Carol Bunn.
What The Critics Say
4 Stars Michael Cooper
"Estate-grown at Parkburn, in the Cromwell Basin, this is the second label of Mitre Rocks. The 2009 vintage (4*) is floral and finely textured, rich and supple, with deep, bright colour, fresh acidity and strong cherry, spice, olive and dried-herb flavours."
