Burn Cottage Pinot Noir 2014
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 24% whole-bunch fermentation to achieve a lifted fragrance and was aged in 22% new French barrels.
Seductive and enticing, offering intriguing aromas of sun ripened red fruits, earl grey tea and underlying characters of autumnal leaves and wet stones. The palate is youthful and vibrant with an elegance and richness characteristic of Burn Cottage. The red berry fruit flavours combine with wild thyme and rich savoury notes, supported by beautifully poised tannins that give depth to the long, mouth-watering finish.
