100% Pinot Noir from carefully selected blocks within Burn Cottage's vineyards located in the Central Otago region.
The winemaking reflects biodynamic principles with low intervention. There is no addition of yeasts or bacteria for fermentations, with minimal sulphur use and no filtration before bottling. Contains a skilful use of 31% whole-bunch fermentation to achieve a lifted fragrance and was aged in 19% new French barrels.
Wonderfully complex aromas of fern leaf, rhubarb, potpourri and rose petal contrast with more mineral notes of dust, graphite and gravel. The palate possesses a lovely sweet attack without becoming cloying, and melts into supple, fine tannins which will marry completely over time. The overall impression is silky and sensual. Excellent acidity lends great vibrancy, and the wine ends on a long, lingering finish.
