Lifted aromas of blackcurrant and blueberries. The palate is bright and well-defined with layers of black cherry, plum and dark spice, over ripe tannins and real depth from light oaking.
Akitu A2 Pinot noir, Bannockburn, Central Otago
New Zealand. Ripe and intense plum fruit with subtle cinnamon spice lift defines the nose. The concentration of the primary fruit aromatics builds with airing, giving further dimension. Licorice and lavender florals elegantly unfold into a gentle gamey bouquet. Generous and succulent with a silky and supple tannin texture, and juicy acidity giving impressive length and persistence. Brightness and approachability are the driving force of this wine, however a hint of complexity we have come to expect from this vineyard adds a layer of real and intriguing character to the fruit depth.
Akitu A1 Pinot Noir, Bannockburn, Central Otago
New Zealand. Spiced cherry primary fruit and dusty dried herb aromas build gently on the nose, giving way to dark plum fruit characters with a background of brown spices and leafy complexity. Considerable depth and dimension is revealed that belies the intensity of bouquet. Brooding aromatics driven by a precise fruit focus. The dark juicy plum drives a generous entry to the palate and that spiced cherry adds great focus and length of flavour. Cinnamon and subtle anise characters are woven into the tactile structure of the wine. The tannin backbone compliments juicy acidity giving a velvety yet lively texture and a mouth-watering finish. Tension with restraint.
