Murdoch James Blue Rock Pinot

Situated on the Dry River terraces, the Murdoch James Estate’s Blue Rock Vineyard enjoys premium grape growing soil conditions with a mixture of calciferous lime, clay and river silts with a high mineral content. The action of the Australian tectonic plate, scraping the bed of the Pacific plate millions of years ago, gave rise to the limestone rich hills of Blue Rock.This unique site combined with Martinborough’s warm days and cool nights, forms the character or ‘place’ that is reflected in all of Murdoch James Estate wines.
