Ex-Akarua winemaker's exciting new Pinot project

Description

As winemaker for Olssens and Akarua, Matt Connell's name is associated with some of the finest Central Otago Pinot Noirs made in the last decade. He's now gone out on his own, and his first release makes a massive statement. Rendition is a blend of Lowburn and Bendigo fruit, a smoky, dense and luscious style of Pinot Noir that is immediately delicious and memorable, but promises to become even more so with another 5 to 8 years in bottle.

Smells

A kiss of wild thyme and oregano over dark cherry, smoky oak, liquorice and red plum.

Tastes

Juicy, lavish and very generous, with a significant smoky, chocolatey note from high quality French oak, this is decadent and full-bodied style of Central Otago Pinot Noir with intense fruit and a long, smoky finish. Great with lamb between now and 2024.
