BURN COTTAGE Pinot Noir 'Moonlight Race' 2015

The 2015 Moonlight Race is a beautiful Pinot Noir, which marries fruit from three Central Otago vineyards - Burn Cottage Vineyard, Northburn Vineyard, and Mark II Vineyard. Variations in soils, elevation, aspect combine to offer this beautiful expression of Central Otago Pinot Noir. Dark juicy fruits of plum and black cherry spread between spice layers with notes of ginger and lavender, with hints of clove and earthiness. The palate practically explodes with a fresh, fruity acidity and lingers with a bitter orange rind finish. In between are spicy cranberries and ripe juicy plums that make you salivate for more. Beautifully balanced with supporting wood undertones and freshness that are a pleasure now and will continue to develop complexity with time. (Best 2017-2027) - April, 2017 (JH)
