The 2020 vintage of Akarua Pinot Noir is showing the savoury concentration of a low yielding season. It is a vintage expressing dominant notes of earth and spice rather than the concentrated fruit character we have seen in other seasons. It is a dark and broody, cellar-worthy expression of our Akarua Pinot Noir, certainly reminiscent of the 2017.

"A pretty nose of cherries and cranberries with undertones of sweet spices and violets. It’s medium-bodied with crisp acidity. Silky texture with juicy and crunchy character. Pure and fresh with a succulent finish. "

Bob Campbell 95 Points Oct 2021
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.

A pretty nose of cherries and cranberries with undertones of sweet spices and violets. It’s medium-bodied with crisp acidity. Silky texture with juicy and crunchy character. Pure and fresh with a succulent finish. Drink now or hold. Screw cap.
