2018 Burn Cottage Moonlight Race Pinot Noir
A blend of two vineyards – Burn Cottage Vineyard (Lowburn) and Sauvage Vineyard (Bannockburn).
Rarely is a Pinot Noir from Central Otago so supple, delicious and easy to drink as this little number. Cherry and squishy berries, dried herb and plenty of spice, a little fresh mint and rose perfume. Tannin is fleshy and plentiful, yet soft and gently mouth-coating. Finish is all spice and strawberry with a subtle meaty character, leaving emery board tannin in its wake. Love it. Great drinking now. Drink 2021 - 2024.
