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.
This biodynamically grown Pinot Noir creates a myriad of mulberry, wild thyme and enticing savoury undertones which are interwoven with layers of ripe summer berries. On the palate, good concentration and supple tannins lead to a long, lingering finish.
