Burn Cottage refers to the name of a road on which the 24 hectare property sits in Central Otago. The estate was once a sheep paddock until its purchase by Marquis Sauvage in 2002. Marquis brought on board Ted Lemon of Littorai as their winemaker and in 2003, they started planting Pinot Noir. Six years later, they released their first wine.
Bright red berry aromas are complemented by the savoury earth, rich chocolate and spicy notes on the nose. The palate is complex and generous with fine textural tannins, a mineral freshness and juicy acidity.
