Akitu A2 Central Otago Pinot Noir (2018)

Grown at high altitude at Mt Barker, in the Wanaka sub-region, the 2018 vintage (4.5*) was designed as a 'highly drinkable wine of unthinkable quality'. Matured in French oak casks, it is a bright ruby, attractively scented red, with strong, ripe, cherryish, spicy, nutty flavours, fresh acidity, and loads of drink-young charm. Best drinking 2022+.
