Siren High res

Akarua The Siren Pinot Noir 2018

"A barrel selection of wine made from the best parcels of the Cairnmuir Road home block. Intense, complex pinot noir with plum, dark berry, floral and wood-smoke with a signature of wild thyme. An elegant wine with layers of different flavours. Well-structured with obvious cellaring potential," 95 points, Bob Campbell MW, October 2021

Akarua Pinot Noir 2020

"Restrained voluptuousness with Black Doris plum, cassis, floral, violet and spice, thyme and anise flavours. Rich, smooth-textured wine that is a pleasure to taste. Gobs of fruit supported by enough acid and tannins to prevent any sense of cloying. A well-made wine that measures up to its predecessors," 95 points, Bob Campbell MW, Oct 21

Akarua Pinot Noir 2020

Dark, even, light ruby-red with some depth. The nose is elegantly powerful with classic Central Otago Pinot Noir nuances of black and red cherries, blackberries and blueberries, entwined with dark herbs, thyme, black pepper and toasty oak spice details. Full-bodied, dark cherries with bramble along with dark herbs and oak spices. The fruit is rich and intense in aromas, interweaved with fine-grained tannin extraction, providing support alongside toasty oak and alcohol power. Complexing details of dark herbs, spices and earth unfolding as its aerated. Warming alcohol carries spices and liquorice to a lengthy and robust finish. Match with grilled lamb and venison over the next 5 years. Fermented to 14% alc, aged 11 months in French oak barriques, unfined. Vegan friendly. Candice Chow, August 2020, 18.5/20 pts
