Burnt Spur Martinborough Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2011 Vintage) says
Light ruby, single-vineyard red with ripe cherry/plum flavours, showing some savoury complexity. Silky textured, with very good depth and harmony. Enjoyable now onwards.
March/April 2013
Michael Cooper (2009 Vintage) says
This single-vineyard red is grown south of the town, on heavier soils than those found on the Martinbotough Terrace. The 2009 vintage French oak-aged for 10 months, is sturdy and savoury, with strong plum, spice, herb and olive flavours, considerable complexity and finely balanced tannins. Drink now or cellar.

Michael Cooper (2007 Vintage) says
This single-vineyard red is grown south of the township, on heavier soils than those of the Martinborough Terrace. The 2007 vintage was hand-picked and matured for 10 months in French oak barriques. A generous wine, it is fragrant and sturdy (14.5 per cent alcohol), with deep, youthful colour, rich plum/spice flavours and hints of herbs and liquorice. Drink now or cellar.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
The 2002 vintage is ruby-hued, with cherryish, spicy, green-edged flavours and firm tannins. It's a middleweight style showing a slight lack of fruit sweetness, but also some savoury, earthy complexity.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
Delicious in its youth, the 2001 vintage is a weighty wine with ripe fruit characters, very good depth of cherryish, plummy flavour, finely integrated oak and gentle tannins. It should mature well, but it's already very charming.
