20 Vintages Vertical Special

The 2019 Akarua Pinot Noir marks 20 vintages since our very first release from the 1999 season.

To celebrate we have released a six pack special – three bottles Akarua Pinot Noir 2019 and three bottles Akarua Pinot Noir 2018.

“Seductive, ripe, fruity, floral and varietal with aromas of sweet dark red cherry and dried raspberry and a medley of minerality and sweet oak spices. Equally seductive and ripe on the palate with flavours that mirror the nose plus plum, clove, vanilla and thyme. An abundance of fine tannins, medium+ acidity and lengthy youthful finish. Delicious and well made.”

Akarua Pinot Noir 2018
"This has tremendous clarity of fruit and attractively placed spicy oak complexity. The palate delivers a smooth, crisp and focused feel with plenty of fruit flesh and red cherry flavour."
93 Points, James Suckling

Akarua Pinot Noir 2019
"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."
18.5/20 Points, Candice Chow
