Drink now or cellar for up to 9 years. No need to decant before serving.

The Burn Cottage estate was formerly sheep pasture until it was purchased by Marquis Sauvage in 2002 and converted into an award-winning winery with the help of winemaker Ted Lemon. Lemon insisted that the whole estate be farmed biodynamically from day one which helps to ensure exceptional quality fruit and a sustainable approach to viticulture. Burn Cottage has the distinction of being the first and only Central Otago winery to have practised biodynamic agriculture from its very foundation.

Their Moonlight Race Pinot is crafted from estate-grown fruit as well as grapes from two other Central Otago vineyards which are also farmed sustainably. The must is vinified using wild yeasts and the young wine is then aged in French oak barrels for 12 months to add extra complexity and polish.

The nose opens with intense hints of bright red cherry, ripe plums and bramble while the first sip reveals a medium body, vibrant freshness and rich red fruit flavours with a pure and clean finish. The lively red fruit character makes this a fantastic match for duck dishes like Peking duck or roast duck with a plum sauce, and it can also be cellared for another five years or so if desired.
