Burn Cottage Moonlight Race Pinot Noir 2022, Gimblett Gravels, Central Otago, New Zealand

Burn Cottage Vineyard Property 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 based in Chicago. “Along with 10 hectares of vines we have over 20 hectares of land devoted to creating an enclosed farm system. We have Highland Cattle to provide integrated grazing of pastures and to supply manure for our compost programs. We also keep bees and have planted an olive grove to produce olive oil in the future.” From vintage 2021 Moonlight Race Pinot Noir comprises three sites that we farm ourselves: our estate vineyards Burn Cottage Vineyard in Lowburn, and Sauvage Vineyard in Bannockburn, along with the Luna vineyard in Bannockburn. The blend of these three special sites produces our vibrant expression of classic Central Otago with concentrated dark and red berry fruit flavors with a supple texture and fine tannins.
