Burn Cottage Vineyard Property is a twenty four hectare estate in the foothills of the Pisa range in Central Otago, New Zealand. The vineyard is owned by the Sauvage family which also owns the celebrated Koehler Ruprecht estate in the Pfalz region of Germany, as well as several fine wine importing and wholesaling companies in the United States. The property was purchased in 2002. It was much coveted in the region for it is sheltered from both northerly and southerly winds by large hills and forms a beautiful, protected bowl, much like a modern amphitheatre.
What The Critics Say
97/100 Bob Campbell MW
"I never swallow samples during tasting but got pretty close with this wine. It's just so damn delicious with layer upon layer of fruit and savoury characters that defy description. A tease of fruit sweetness is balanced by gentle tannins and subtle acidity that drive a very lengthy finish. A seriously good pinot noir 12 AUG 2019." Drink 2019 - 2027
96/100 Cameron Douglas MS
"Complex, layered, mineral-laden, earthy and fruity bouquet of Pinot Noir. Scents of roses and sweet wood spices, fruit aromas of cherry and preserved cherry, red apple, raspberry and a mix of forest berries. Equally complex, detailed and flavourful on the palate with textures from fine tannins, medium+ acidity and a core of Pinosity. Long finish, complex, youthful and particular. A delicious wine - and no question about whether you should invest or not (invest). Best drinking is now and through 2026." Drink 2019 - 2026
95/100 The Wine Front, Gary Walsh
"Invariably near the top of the tree for me, when it comes to Central Otago Pinot. These wines don’t feel so forced, and have a distinct personality. Plum, cherry, dried roses, toasted hazelnut, a wee bit of sweet spice. It’s silky and supple, fills the mouth with quiet intensity, acidity sitting happily inside the wine, some sappy energy, but it’s the quality of tannin, a kind of Turkish coffee spread, that sets it apart. Ripe strawberry and a floral perfume mingles with more umami flavours on a long finish. Wonderful." Drink 2020 - 2025+
