A boutique legend that is like hen's teeth in retail – do not wait for even a second to buy this! From a small and focused producer in which Steiner's philosophy of biodynamics informs all aspects of production, especially in the vineyard, comes this rich and complex but elegant, expressive Pinot Noir. A seriously invested and realised expression of Central Otago terroir, the Burn Cottage will not remain this price for long. It is a Kiwi bucket-list wine. Buy now or buy never!

Overview

Grape

Pinot Noir

Its Origins

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

94/100 Bob Campbell MW

"An unusually hot vintage has produced a spicier and less opulent than usual pinot noir with savoury, dried herb, raspberry, red cherry, violet and plum flavours supported by fine, drying tannins. Needs bottle age 22 OCT 2020." Drink 2020 - 2026

94/100 and rated "Excellent" by Cameron Douglas MS

"Complex and fine with aromas of fresh cherry, ripe and juicy raspberry and red apple. Layers of mineral and soil spices with a floral overtone and fine barrel toasty qualities. On the palate - equally fine and complex with a core of fruit, firm tannins and medium+ acidity. Tense, youthful and dry with a fantastic texture and fine lengthy finish. Well made and ready to enjoy from 2021 through 2031." Drink 2021 - 2031
