Description

Grapes were hand-picked from the Burn Cottage Vineyard in Cromwell, Central Otago between 15th and 25th March, with an average Brix at harvest of 23.4. Eight different Pinot Noir clones from nine vineyard blocks made the final blend. The ferments contained 16% whole clusters, with the wine spending an average of 20 days on skins. The wine was matured in French oak barrels (23% new) from the Damy, Mercurey and Sylvain cooperages. Lovely savoury dry-herb and dark-earth tones partner with bright red fruits, a hint of citrus and warm spice. Initially restrained, the wine unfolds with energy, focus and layers of complexity. Silky, ripe tannins and fine mineral acidity extend throughout the palate. Showing wonderful texture, layers and completeness, we expect this wine to have a cellaring potential of 8-10 years. – Claire Mulholland

'This is a very attractive and gently complex pinot that sits in a red-cherry and red-plum zone, laced with spicy, gently herbal and floral elements, too. The palate has a very composed, fresh red-cherry centre with spice and light peppery nuances. Plenty of bright acidity lifts the finish. So fresh. Drink or hold.' - 95 points.
