94 Points Cameron Douglas MS
In stock
A glimpse at the legendary Burn Cottage Pinot, this "second" label is much better than many producer's premium option. The harmony and artisinal quality are palpable here, with nuance and complexity lying behind penetrating fruit clarity. Made from three blocks – one biodynamic like their estate blocks, one organic and one managed sustainably – the style is silky and approachable but with the concentration to age. Prices are rising steeply in the boutique category, so get in at the ground floor with this inexpensive pedigree and deliciousness. Very limited stocks!
$44.99 in mixed 6+ or $49.99 per bottle

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 Cameron Douglas MS

"Complex yet subtle, earthy before fruity, floral before oaky, totally varietal and completely captivating. On the palate - dry, tense, fruity, youthful, lighter on it feet, but loaded with varietal signatures of dried herb and red berry fruits, fine tannins and medium+ acidity, mineral and earth layers, nicely complex and nothing overdone. Balanced and well made. Drink now and through 2025." Drink 2019 - 2025

94/100 Bob Campbell MW

"A blend of fruit from the Home vineyard in Lowburn and the Sauvage vineyard in Bannockburn. Seductive and accessible pinot noir with ripe cherry, fresh herb, plum, spice, thyme, roasted chestnut and nutty oak flavours. 02 APR 2020." Drink 2020 - 2024
