About The Wine
Burn Cottage is one of the most celebrated Pinot Noirs in New Zealand.
A biodynamic vineyard from day one, this site has been groomed to perfection to produce Pinot Noir that can rival any in the world. Many believe this to be one of the most impressive versions of Pinot Noir outside of Burgundy.
Planted in only 2003, each year the vines get older, the more intense and complex the wine gets.
It's the rare combination of power and finesse that sets the Burn Cottage Pinot Noir apart.
The 2016 vintage was voted the number one Central Otago Pinot Noir by Bob Campbell MW out of 98 wines tasted. He awarded it 98 points. This wine will be one of the prizes of your cellar for many years to come.
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.
