A myriad of mulberry, wild thyme and enticing savoury undertones are interwoven with layers of ripe summer berries.The palate displays both generosity and restraint, with plump & supple tannins that are supported by an amalgam of summer ripened plums, dark cherry and a freshness reminiscent of ripe red fruits. The finish is long, the wine showing lovely fruit purity and definition. This wine shares the rich mid palate so enticing to most Central Otago Pinot Noirs but has plenty of concentration to ensure that it will continue to improve and gain complexity over the years to come. We are delighted with this first bottling of the Moonlight Race.

Wine SpectatorBold and expressive, with a black licorice accent to the plum and black cherry core. Hints of orange zest, black tea and sage add aromatic intrigue. Smooth and plush on the long finish. Drink now through 2026. 1,866 cases made.

Wine AdvocatePale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2014 Burn Cottage Moonlight Race gives a great intensity of ripe red cherry, cranberry and black raspberry aromas with hints of violets, vanilla, anise and cinnamon stick. Medium-bodied, it fills the palate with expressive red berry and baking spice flavors, supported by velvety tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and spicy.
