2016 Burn Cottage Pinot Noir Central Otago

SKU #1434576 98 points Bob Campbell

Outer quote mark This is a terrific pinot noir - great to drink now despite the sneaking feeling that it's going to get even better with bottle age. Totally seductive ripe cherry, berry and plum flavours with added complexity from subliminal floral, spice, savoury and herb. The texture is to die for and the wine has impressive power as evidenced by a lingering finish that won't quit. Inner quote mark (10/2018)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Burn Cottage Vineyard Pinot Noir is a wine of tremendous appeal and seduction. Herb-tinged black cherries and cola notes appear on the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is rich and silky, lined with plush yet well-defined tannins that support the fruit and linger on the long finish. It's approachable now, but it should drink well for a decade or more. (JC) Inner quote mark (7/2019)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Elegant and focused, featuring fresh raspberry and cherry flavors at the core, with a creamy texture, accents of cinnamon and clove, and dried herbal and black tea notes echoing in the background. All the elements are harmonious on the long finish. Drink now through 2033. (MW) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Ripe red cherries with attractive spicy complexity. Silky, supple and deeply flavorsome palate with smooth, mellow tannins that carry plenty of fresh, bright red-cherry flavor. Drink now. Screw cap. Inner quote mark (12/2018)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Light cherry. Much more open and aromatic than the 2012. Full of lively red fruit and those crushed herbs again. Smooth and compact on the palate, multiple very fine layers. Less open on the palate than on the nose. Needs time. 17.5/20 points. (JH) Inner quote mark (1/2018)
