This wine has aromas of cherry, rosehip and spices with enticing savoury undertones of truffle and autumnal earth. On the palate, good concentration and supple tannins lead to a long, lingering finish.
A myriad of mulberry, wild thyme and enticing savoury undertones are interwoven with layers of ripe summer berries.The palate displays both generosity and restraint, with plump and supple tannins that are supported by an amalgam of summer ripened plums, dark cherry and a freshness reminiscent of ripe red fruits. The finish is long, the wine showing lovely fruit purity and definition.
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.
Burn Cottage refers to the name of the road on which this 28 hectare property sits in Central Otago. The estate was once a sheep paddock until it was purchased by Marquis Sauvage in 2002. Marquis enlisted Ted Lemon of Sonoma Coast�s famous Littorai as their winemaker and together they decided to plant Pinot Noir in 2003.
