If you crave thoroughly pure, complex, and lavish Pinot Noirs, Burn Cottage’s flagship estate bottling will put you in a blissful stupor. Aside from full-on biodynamics in the vineyard and a scrupulous cellar regimen that would cause a number of Burgundian old-timers to take copious notes, these Pinot Noirs are currently equipped with some of the most doting and consistently high praise of contemporary times.

WINE FRONT 95 POINTS:

"Precise and perfumed with lovely aromatics of cherry, violets, and spice layered with hints of savoury bramble and a mineral element of wet riverstone. There is a wonderful finesse, layers of interest, and finely held textural tannins extending through the long palate. A wine with vibrant focus, intensity and drive. Cellaring up to 12 years." - Burn Cottage

 "It’s tightly wound and cinched with fine, silty tannins. Perfume is a little mute, but that’s ok, dark cherry, a bit of flinty minerality, new leather, kirsch and dark chocolate apparent. Flavours similar but strongly minerally, briny acidity a feature, orangey acidity and a cool breeze of bergamot piquancy-bitterness in the mix. Succulent as all get out too, kinda refreshing all up. A beauty." - Mike Bennie Front

 

Burn Cottage Vineyard Property is a twenty-four-hectare estate in the foothills of the Pisa range in Central Otago. The land was acquired in 2002, and prior had been grazed by sheep. With no immediate vineyard neighbours, this site was coveted for its shelter from the northerly and southerly winds via the large hills that form a beautiful, protected bowl, much like a modern amphitheatre.

In the winery, Burn Cottage relies on natural yeasts for fermentation, and the use of sulfur is limited. A portion of whole bunches are often included to incorporate tannins into the fermenting wine. French oak barrels are sourced for barrel-aging with a portion of new oak selected for each wine.
