Burn Cottage Pinot Noir
Six years later, they released their first wine. In order to select the best sites for their Pinot Noir, they dug 60 soil pits and subsequently selected ten clones to plant on five different rootstocks tailored to the different soil profiles. Burn Cottage is distinguished in Central Otago as the first and only estate in the region to have practised biodynamics since day one. This was Ted Lemon’s one stipulation for his involvement. The winemaking at Burn Cottage is best described as ‘minimal intervention’. There is no addition of yeasts or bacteria for fermentations, with minimal sulphur use and no filtration before bottling
On the nose, bright red fruit aromas are coupled with savoury herbal notes and a hint of sweet spice. On the palate, the concentrated flavours are well balanced with silky, fine-grained tannins and crunchy acidity, bringing great finesse to this wine.
One of New Zealand’s best Pinot Noirs; very delicious. Would be perfect with rich duck dishes.
