100% Pinot Noir sourced from Burn Cottage's northeast facing vineyard located at the south end of the Pisa Range in the Cromwell Basin, Central Otago.
Fruit underwent indigenous ferments for around 16 days with 15% kept as whole clusters. Tanks were hand plunged 3 to 4 times daily during ferment. After 12 months in 25% new French oak barriques, the wine was bottled unfiltered.
Enticing savoury aromatics of freshly rubbed thyme, dark berry fruits, rosehip, autumnal earth, truffle and black tea. Dark toned and dense, this wine has vibrancy, suppleness and power. The textural tannins yield to a lingering and powerful finish. An exciting youthful wine which is still unfolding, and also promising very good cellaring potential.
