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.

Generous, stylish, spicy and expressive, with plump blackberry, clove and plum flavors wrapped around a thread of black licorice. The texture is smooth and lush, while the tannins provide appealing traction on the finish, where a fresh green sage note comes in. Drink now through 2033. 2,600 cases made, 300 cases imported.

This offers sappy, spicy red cherries with a brambly, forest-floor edge to the nose, leading to a palate with impressive cherry-pip flavor and a smooth, gently nutty wrap of tannins.

Delicate notes of sous-bois, beets, raspberries and cherries all emerge on the nose of the 2016 Moonlight Race Pinot Noir, which blends fruit from Burn Cottage's own estate vineyard with a couple of nearby sites. It's medium-bodied, silky and easy-drinking on the palate, with a soft tea-like, herbal note on the finish.
