Product Information
Sales Information
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 and 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.
The Vineyard
Burn Cottage refers to the name of a road on which the 24 hectare property sits in Central Otago. The estate was once a sheep paddock until its purchase by Marquis Sauvage in 2002. Marquis brought on
board Ted Lemon of Littorai as their winemaker and in 2003, they started planting Pinot Noir. Six years later, they released their first wine.

To find suitable plots to plant on, 60 soil pits were dug and ten Pinot Noir clones were selected to plant on five different rootstocks tailored to the different soil profiles. Burn Cottage has the unique distinction of being the first and only Central Otago estate that has been biodynamic since day one, Ted Lemon’s one stipulation for his involvement. The Moonlight Race Pinot Noir 2014 incorporates a blend of sites: fruit produced on Burn Cottage's own biodynamic farmed estate vineyard, along with two other vineyards in the Central Otago region. One site is farmed sustainably and another organically with some biodynamic input. The marriage creates a vibrant reflection of classic Central Otago Pinot Noir.
