Burn Cottage

Burn Cottage 'Moonlight Race' Pinot Noir 2015 Central Otago
Fragrant and distinctive bouquet with a mix of floral, earth and fruit messages, noticeable, but not overdone oak, fine toasty layer with some kitchen spice attributes. on the palate - dry, spicy, floral, fruity, mineral, dry, moderate tannins and plenty of acidity, lengthy and individualistic expression and finish. A lovely wine that can be cellared if desired; best drinking 2018 through 2024.

Burn Cottage Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015 Central Otago
Steely and haunting bouquet with an enticing allure - aromas of crushed flowers, fine light red fruit layers, noticeable oak, plenty of mineral intoxication, spices and complexity. On the palate - dry, quite complex and enticing with flavours that reflect the nose as well as fine oak and fruit tannins, plenty of acidity, a very fine savoury layer, lengthy and flavourful finish. A fine wine, but also youthful still with a very specific pinosity message. Drink now if decanted otherwise from 2018 through 2028.
