Cashburn Pinot Noir By Burn Cottage 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"Cashburn is the second label of Burn Cottage Pinot Noir from Central Otago, New Zealand. The wine is made from declassified fruit from the Burn Cottage Vineyard by Ted Lemon of Littorai. The property is farmed using biodyanmic farming techniques and is owned and operated by the Sauvage family who also has property in the Pfalz in Germany and owns distributors in the US. Ted Lemon's thirty years of experience as a head winemaker and vineyard manager are the guiding hand on the tiller at Burn Cottage. Ted is well known in both the new and old worlds for his passionate devotion to producing terroir driven wines. Ted earned an enology degree from the Universite de Bourgogne, apprenticed at Domaines Dujac, Roumier, De Villaine and Bruno Claire and was the first American ever hired to manage an estate in Burgundy, Domaine Guy Roulot in Meursault. He and his wife Heidi founded their estate, Littorai Wines, in Sonoma County, California in 1993." -Winery

In 1974, Lois and the late Rolfe Mills moved back to the family farm in Wanaka. Acting largely on a hunch born in the schist slopes of the Douro Valley many years earlier, they planted a few short rows of experimental vines on a small steep bank above their house. Despite the mostly negative opinions of the viticultural experts of the time, the climate data that Rolfe collected was encouragement enough for them to plant their first commercial vineyard block in 1982. The growing belief they had in the site’s potential to produce fine wine was soon to be realised. There were many years of monitoring weather patterns, sugar levels and different grape varieties that could be suitable to the area. Through many years of empirical and scientific observation, Pinot Noir, Riesling, Gewurztraminer & Sauvignon Blanc quickly came to the fore as the varieties which are most suited to the Rippon site. We also enjoy working with Gamay and Osteiner, from which we make lighter style summer wines. Some of the varieties which we have worked with, but have been replaced are Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Gris, Semillon, Chenin Blanc, Muller Thurgau, Breidecker, Chardonnay... The total area under vines is now 15 hectares with the majority of plantings in Pinot Noir and Riesling. Read less
