Product Description

Pinot Noir fruit (clones 5, 114, 115, 667, 777, 828, 943, 10/5, MV6 and Abel) were handpicked from nine blocks across the biodynamic-certified Burn Cottage vineyard at a ripeness of 22.7 Brix between 28th March and 10th April 2017. The fruit was fermented with 13% whole clusters, spending a total of 21 days on skins on average. The wine was matured in Damy, Mercurey, Sylvain barrels (25% new). Alcohol 13.5%; pH 3.65; TA 5.4g/L.
Bright lifted red fruit notes complement darker savoury earth tones along with spice, a touch of chocolate and subtle blood orange nuances. The palate is generous and complex, focused throughout by a mineral freshness and energy, and supported by lovely acidity with persistence of fine textural tannins. A wine that will continue to gain complexity, and we expect a cellaring potential of 10+ years. – Claire Mulholland, Burn Cottage

I never swallow samples during tasting but got pretty close with this wine. It's just so damn delicious with layer upon layer of fruit and savoury characters that defy description. A tease of fruit sweetness is balanced by gentle tannins and subtle acidity that drive a very lengthy finish. A seriously good Pinot Noir. 97 points Bob Campbell MW

This has very attractive, ripe red-cherry and plum aromas with spicy and sappy complexity, sitting in such a pure mode. The palate has a very composed and compact, layered feel with pristine blueberry, dark-cherry and plum flavors, delivered in an elegant, regal style. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold. 96 points Nick Stock

Invariably near the top of the tree for me, when it comes to Central Otago Pinot. These wines don’t feel so forced, and have a distinct personality.
Plum, cherry, dried roses, toasted hazelnut, a wee bit of sweet spice. It’s silky and supple, fills the mouth with quiet intensity, acidity sitting happily inside the wine, some sappy energy, but it’s the quality of tannin, a kind of Turkish coffee spread, that sets it apart. Ripe strawberry and a floral perfume mingles with more umami flavours on a long finish. Wonderful. 95 points The Wine Front
