New Zealand Pinot Noir 2009
Akarua New Zealand Pinot Noir 2009, NZ 2009, pinot noir 2009,
24 of 28


Akarua built its reputation on a massive fruit-bomb style from the 2002 vintage. It’s done it again with a wine of similar power but showing better balance. It’s an easy-to-love wine with a drop-dead silken texture and a lingering fruity finish. 19pts/20
