Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Enticing savoury aromatics of freshly rubbed thyme, dark berry fruits, rosehip, autumnal earth, truffle and black tea. Dark toned and dense, this wine has vibrancy, suppleness and power. The textural tannins yield to a lingering and powerful finish. An exciting youthful wine which is still unfolding, and also promising very good cellaring potential."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"The classy 2015 vintage was grown at three sites (including Burn Cottage Vineyard) in the Cromwell Basin, fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in French oak casks (25 per cent new). Full-coloured, it is mouthfilling and savoury, with deep, ripe plum/spice flavours, good tannin support, and excellent complexity and harmony. Already 'open' and expressive, but well worth cellaring, it should break into full stride 2019+."
5 Stars & 96/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, May 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"​Moonlight Race is a blend of grapes from Burn Cottage Vineyard (35%), Northburn Vineyard (35%) and Mark ll Vineyard, with a mix of clones in each. 22.5% whole cluster. Similar in style to the regular Burn Cottage label but with more sweet fruit and a sappy influence adding complexity to berry, oak and floral flavours. A subtle and beguiling wine with finely pitched structure that allows access now while assuring a promising future."
94/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, October 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"​A blend of three vineyards here. The Burn Cottage crew have stepped out from the remarkable home vineyard, though I think it makes up about a third of the wine. Low on the oak so you can slam it down fast. Wonderful perfume. Smells cherry-like, savoury, faint dusty spice, touch of clove, earthiness, undergrowth. Really a whole lot going on. Texture is firm, tight, subtle and cool in fruit flavours, long. Long. It’s elegant yet shows off savouriness, tannins are shapely and succulent. It’s restrained, needs time, but offers so much for serious pinot lovers. Yep."
