Burn Cottage purchased the "Sauvage" Vineyard in 2017, bringing all of their fruit sources in house. 54% of the "Moonlight Race" Pinot Noir comes from the "Sauvage" Vineyard, with the balance coming from the original Lowburn Vineyard.

The 2018 vintage also saw the initial release of the highly sought after "Sauvage" Pinot Noir (there was virtually none available). The Lowburn Vineyard is Organic and the Sauvage Vienyard is biodynamic in conversion, in keeping with their environmentally friendly credentials the Moonlight Race is also now in a lightweight bottle.

And the Moonlight Race Pinot Noir 2019 is beautiful, maybe just pipping the '18 on all-round brilliance.

It's bright and brimming with fruit that feels crunchy and succulent at once.The signature layers of earth and spice are there, as are the velvet texture, vibrant fine tannins and lovely acidity.

It is, in short, a wonderful Pinot Noir.

James Suckling gave it 94 points and said:

"Aromas of blueberries, cherries, pomegranates, dried flowers and baking spices. It’s medium-bodied with lively acidity. Vibrant and crunchy with plenty of fruit. Succulent finish with excellent length. Linear and tight at the finish. Drink now or hold. Screw cap."
