2014 Burn Cottage Moonlight Race Pinot Noir Central Otago New Zealand

Vintage Notes: A cool winter, and there were instances of frost fighting in the early parts of the season also with cold nights. Flowering was relatively quick, and it was quite windy through this period so the resulting bunches were quite open. Wind presented a challenge at other times throughout the season also, however overall there were mild, favourable temperatures which prevailed through to late January. Temperatures rose at the start of February and the remaining season was warm and dry. The ripening of the crop progressed well and we picked from the end of March.


Tasting Notes: Bright fruit notes entice with cherry, rosehip and spice box aromas, but there are also rich earth and dark savoury notes here. The palate is one of elegance, concentration and power, while supple harmonious tannins give wonderful persistence to the wine. Vibrant and youthful now, this wine also promises very good cellaring potential.

    92 POINTS: Ripe, bright and fruit centric bouquet with aromas of sweet raspberry and cherry, red flowers and red apple. A light carbonic whole berry note adds lift, freshness and a little intrigue. Fresh, fruity, firm, crisp and dry on the palate. Youthful too wine fine and tense tannins, medium+ acidity and light-weight frame. Lengthy finish with persistent flavours, nicely balanced and well made. Drink now and through 2023.
