Kolo Pinot Noir 2018

Let Akarua take care of the spoiling for you.

X1 bottle of Akarua Kolo Pinot Noir 2018 in our beautifully crafted environmentally friendly giftboxes made from recycled card, with stunning foiled detail echoing our native mountain daisies.
A single block wine from within our Felton Terraces Vineyard at the end of Felton Road, tucked between the mountains in Long Gully. This block is named after a young Maori warrior Kolo, who famously defended his mother and young sister from a Haast eagle attack; according to local legend.

Intensely savoury perfume of cassia bark, cassis, black pepper, smoky bacon and forest floor. Highly concentrated centre palate of black cherries with lifted wild thyme and truffle, tannins are earthy and super fine, with electricity and tension from the driving, linear acidity. Very long, complex, and persistent. 18 months in French oak, 12 months in bottle before release

"From old vines planted in ancient schist soils on Bannockburn’s Felton Road. An elegant rather than blockbuster pinot noir with appealing plum, cherry, red rose, spice, thyme and a suggestion of nutty oak flavours supported by gentle acidity and fine, drying tannins. Approachable now but with promising potential."
