Pinot Noir Central Otago 2013, Burn Cottage

Wine Advocate, Lisa Perrotti-Brown : 93+ points. Deep ruby-purple the 2013 Pinot Noir has a youthfully reticent, brooding nose with hints of black berries and plums plus underlying aged beef, chargrill, anise and lavender suggestions. Medium bodied, the palate reveals great ripeness packed into a relatively elegant package with a medium level of fine grained tannins – impressive texture in fact – harmonious acidity, and a good long finish.

Purchased by larger than life (even for an American) wine lover / distributor Marquis Sauvage in 2002, Burn Cottage is the new kid in this relatively new region. Judging from just the first commercially released vintage (2009) it was clear that Marquis has one goal in mind – produce a Pinot Noir of the utmost quality. Established in what classifies as the Lowburn sub-region, the vineyard was previously just grazing land and is somewhat separated from the rest of the vineyards in Lowburn. Planted on a north-east facing slope within a natural amphitheater with soils that are unique to the Pisa / Lowburn area, it’s actually more like a monopole. Under the consultancy of Sonoma winemaker Ted Lemon (of Littorai fame), the property was established employing biodynamic principals. In 2010, seasoned Central Otago / Lowburn winemaker Claire Mulholland left Amisfield to join the small but dynamic team. With six vintages now under their belt, Burn Cottage still only produces 1 wine, but it’s 1 truly great one.
