2016 Burn Cottage 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.

Winemaker Tasting Notes: Enticing layers of floral, berry and spice notes complement earthy aromatics of wet stone and black tea. With time in the glass, deeper savoury notes and richness from the whole cluster use emerge. This vintage has shown wonderful finesse from the outset, with silky texture and an attractive seamlessness throughout. Focused and very elegant, the wine has fine persistent tannins extending the harmonious finish. Cellaring for up to 7-10 years

    96 POINTS: Made by Burn Cottage from grapes grown in Valli’s Gibbston Valley vineyard. Ripe plum and berry flavours are flattered by a seasoning of spice and dried herb/savoury characters. Dense, weighty and complex wine with good cellaring potential.

    Burn Cottage’s U.S. owners hit the ground running when they produced their first pinot noir in 2009 and they certainly haven’t lost speed since. This is a terrific pinot noir – totally seductive ripe cherry/berry/plum flavours with added complexity from subliminal floral, spice and savoury/herb characters. The texture is to die for and the wine has impressive power evidenced by a lingering finish.
