Akarua Bannockburn Central Otago Pinot Noir (2017)

Estate-grown, hand-picked from mature vines and aged for 11 months in French oak barriques (27 per cent new), the 2017 vintage (5*) is a bold, finely textured red. Fragrant, mouthfilling and supple, it is crammed with concentrated, ripe plum, cherry and spice flavours, showing great vigour and potential. Best drinking 2021+.
