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.
Biodynamically grown Pinot Noir creates a myriad of mulberry, wild thyme and enticing savoury undertones which are interwoven with layers of ripe summer berries. 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.
