Akitu A1 Central Otago Pinot Noir (2018)

Estate-grown 380 metres above sea level at Mt Barker, in the Wanaka sub-region, the barrel-aged 2018 vintage (5*) is a very elegant red, full of youthful drive. Ruby-hued, mouthfilling and sweet-fruited, it is silky and savoury, with cherryish, spicy, nutty flavours, showing excellent poise and complexity. Best drinking 2022+.
