Description

Pinot goes best when it combines power and delicacy and this Akitu A1 Pinot Noir illustrates the point perfectly. A new and welcome addition to the vibrant Wanaka winegrowing scene, this is a beautifully rich Pinot Noir with serious structure and admirable poise even in its youth. Give this a good decant if enjoying in its youth since it really blossoms in the glass, otherwise don't hesitate to cellar for 8 years or more from vintage.

Smells

Fragrant dried herbs with wild thyme, red and black cherries and subtle hints of earth.

Tastes

Full flavoured but medium-bodied, you can see the influence of the whole clusters (26%) on the palate with a stylish and intense tannin structure. Try this with duck risotto for a match made in heaven...
