About The Wine

This may be the second tier Pinot Noir from the Burn Cottage team, but in terms of quality, it could be many producer's flagship.

Over half of the fruit comes from the Burn Cottage vineyard, with the balance supplemented by fruit from the Northburn and Mark II vineyards.

It's picked quite early for fineness and detail, it's a 'prettier' expression of Otago Pinot Noir than is typical to see. 

The 2016 vintage looks in very good form with 94 points from The Wine Front's Mike Bennie.

If you want to experience the highly sought-after wines from this producer, this is a great place to start.

About Burn Cottage

Burn Cottage was founded by husband and wife team Marquis Sauvage and Dianne Sauvage in 2002.

They'd searched the 'New World' for the perfect site to plant a great Pinot Noir vineyard. This special site, a sheep farm in Central Otago, was where they chose to plant.

They employed a rock-star team to kick off the project. World-renowned, Burgundian-trained winemaker Ted Lemon came on board, leading biodynamic experts Peter Proctor and his partner Rachel Pomeroy were employed to consult on establishing the vines.

The vineyard has been biodynamic since inception. The focus, a single-minded mission to produce truly world-class Pinot Noir.

The Wine Front

"Fragrant perfume of red berries, leafiness, sour cherry and green olive. The palate is soft, transparent, ethereal – a quiet flow of pale cherry and savoury fruit characters, spice and herbal detail. Lovely crisp acidity and very fine sheath of tannins in tow. Very quiet, beautiful expression." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
