Description

Enticing layers of floral, berry and spice notes complement earthy aromatics of wet stone and black tea. With time in the glass, deeper savoury notes and richness from the whole cluster use emerge. This vintage has shown wonderful finesse from the outset, with silky texture and an attractive seamlessness throughout. Focused and very elegant, the wine has fine persistent tannins extending the harmonious finish. Cellaring for up to 7-10 years

The Green Snake and the Beautiful Lily portrayed on the label come from the fairy tale by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe that tells story of combining the 'ideal human being' in everyone with 'outer life experiences', with the two working in harmony. It was an inspirational story for Steiner and informs his life's work, including Bio-dynamics, which ties in with Burn Cottages own beliefs of minimal intervention winemaking and discovering the genius of their site and of the individual vineyard blocks within it to allow the wines to reveal it.

A cool winter, and there were instances of frost fighting in the early parts of the season also with cold nights. Flowering was relatively quick, and it was quite windy through this period so the resulting bunches were quite open. Wind presented a challenge at other times throughout the season also, however overall there were mild, favourable temperatures which prevailed through to late January. Temperatures rose at the start of February and the remaining season was warm and dry. The ripening of the crop progressed well and we picked from the end of March.
