Burn Cottage Adds New Vineyard


13-Feb-2018

Central Otago star wine producer Burn Cottage has added a new vineyard to supplement its 11 ha Lowburn vineyard. Named the ‘Sauvage Vineyard’. it is sited on Felton Road in Bannockburn, between Felton Road’s ‘MacMuir’ and Mount Edward’s ‘Muirkirk’ vineyards, and measures 5.8 ha. It is planted to Pinot Noir, the vines established in 1999, and was formerly known as the ‘Sluicings’ vineyard.

Claire Mulholland and Shane Livingston have started its transition to biodynamic farming to match that of the home ‘Burn Cottage’ vineyard. The fruit from the 2018 vintage is planned to go into the ‘Moonlight Race’ Pinot Noir, blended with that from the ‘Burn Cottage’ site in Lowburn. The ultimate intention is to have a single vineyard wine from the site as the Burn Cottage team obtains an understanding of the fruit and the wine it produces.

This significantly increases the range of blending options and possible range in the Burn Cottage portfolio, with Pinot Noir fruit from two highly regarded Central Otago sub-regions. We await the future releases. www.burncottage.com
