Cashburn 2015 Pinot Noir

Cashburn 2015 Pinot Noir

Less rain in winter, a very windy October, and patchy early season weather meant slow vine growth initially. Some frost fighting was required, (some events as late as December) however no damage was sustained. The weather warmed considerably to above average temperatures mid-season, enabling healthy vine growth, and a favorably short flowering. Central Otago had fantastic summer weather and very warm nights at times, so the season quickly caught up to normal timing and maturity progressed well. Cooler periods in February did not change the overall flow of the season and we proceeded to pick in mild weather at the usual timing in March/ April, with winter setting in shortly afterwards. Burn Cottage is a 28 hectare vineyard, farm, and estate in the foothills of the Pisa range in Central Otago, New Zealand. The vineyard is owned by husband and wife Marquis & Dianne Sauvage, who purchased the unplanted property in 2002. It had been grazed by sheep for as long as can currently be remembered. There were, and are, no immediate vineyard neighbors. The site was much coveted in the region, for it is sheltered from both northerly and southerly winds by large hills and forms a beautiful, protected bowl much like a modern amphitheater. It is a phenomenal site for Pinot Noir, and they firmly believe that great wines are not made from fruit; they are born of the soils which nurture the vines and made with minimal intervention winemaking.
