Burn Cottage Pinot Noir 2014 Central Otago
Complex, fragrant, alluring and significant bouquet of Pinot Noir: Fragrant and organic layers with ripe red berry fruits, soft brown baking spices and complex layers of earth and dried herbs. On the palate - dry, fine and layered with youthful chalky tannins, plenty of acidity and packed with fine red berry fruit flavours; floral too with soft borrage and violet moments; lengthy finish. A delightful example that will age well into the 2020s.
