100% Pinot Noir from carefully selected blocks within Burn Cottage's estate vineyards located in the Cromwell Basin sub-region of Central Otago.
The winemaking reflects biodynamic principles with low intervention. No addition of yeasts or bacteria for fermentations, with minimal sulphur use and no filtration before bottling. Hand-harvested fruit contains a skilful use of 23% whole-bunch fermentation to achieve a lifted fragrance. Aged in 24% new French barrels.
Enticing layers of floral, berry and spice notes complement earthy aromatics of wet stone and black tea. With time in the glass deeper savoury notes and richness from the whole cluster use emerge. This vintage has shown wonderful finesse from the outset, with silky texture and an attractive seamlessness throughout. Focused and very elegant, the wine has fine persistent tannins extending an harmonious finish.
