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.

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.

Additional Info

From The Producer

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.

The Real Review

"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." - Bob Campbell MW (The Real Review)

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
