Burn Cottage 2015

We are very lucky to have secured a small allocation of the highly rated 2015 vintage releases from super-star Central Otago producer Burn Cottage. These top class Pinot's are released today and are made in very small volumes - so will sell out in a heartbeat. Vintage 2015 in Central Otago has been called a '1-in-10' vintage with fantastic fruit quality and perfect harvest conditions. We have allocations of the Moonlight Race multi-vineyard blend plus the stellar single vineyard Pinot - Burn Cottage.

Burn Cottage is considered the 'new' Felton Road - which is very high praise indeed. The prices are also not what we would call 'silly' for top Pinot Noir - but once the international wine market catches wind of these gems you can probably expect future releases to sky-rocket!

Burn Cottage Vineyard  is a twenty four hectare estate in the foothills of the Pisa range in Central Otago, New Zealand. The vineyard is owned by the Sauvage family which also owns the celebrated Koehler Ruprecht estate in the Pfalz region of Germany, The winemaker is Ted Lemon who has over thirty years of experience as a head winemaker and vineyard manager and is the guiding hand on the tiller at Burn Cottage. Ted is well known in both the new and old worlds for his passionate devotion to producing terroir driven wines. Ted earned an enology degree from the Universite de Bourgogne, apprenticed at Domaines Dujac, Roumier, De Villaine and Bruno Claire and was the first American ever hired to manage an estate in Burgundy, Domaine Guy Roulot in Meursault. He and his wife Heidi founded their estate, Littorai Wines, in Sonoma County, California in 1993.

"At Burn Cottage we believe in minimal intervention winemaking. Our task is to discover the genius of the site and of the individual vineyard blocks within and to allow the wines to reveal it. We believe in minimizing sulfur usage and avoiding all additives whenever possible. We avoid the use of cultured yeasts, bacteria, associated nutrient products and filters. We avoid racking whenever possible and do wine work according to lunar and celestial rhythms." — Ted Lemon, Winemaker
