Product Description

"Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2012 Pinot Noir sports a gorgeous perfume of roses, violets and lavender over red and black cherry notes plus hints of black pepper and Chinese five spice. Taut and intense on the medium bodied palate with plenty of red berry and spice flavors framed by medium level fine grained tannins and lively acid, it finishes long."

REVIEWS ON SOME PREVIOUS VINTAGES

Akarua Pinot Noir 2011
Vibrant crimson red. A very classy if somewhat crafted style of Pinot Noir. Deep red and purple berry notes - framboise, dark cherry and boysenberry - with violet, lovely spice and the regional pepper note. It is showing its youth a little, being tightly wound and suggesting the best is yet to come. The palate is similarly focused. Probably a reflection of the cooler vintage too, although both fruit and tannins are perfectly ripe. Pepper and spice with dark cherry and plum, a little sweet star anise. Supporting grainy tannins. Lovely freshness often missing in Otago.
