Akarua Bannockburn Central Otago Pinot Noir (2019)

Estate-grown, hand-harvested from 23 year-old vines, and matured for 11 months in French oak barriques (27 per cent new), the deep ruby 2019 vintage (5*) is a good value red, sweet-fruited and supple. Already highly enjoyable, it is full-bodied, with strong cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing excellent harmony, and obvious cellaring potential. Best drinking 2024+.
