Akitu A1 Pinot Noir Wanaka, Central Otago, New Zealand 2014

From a 12-hectare vineyard located in one of the highest and coldest spots in the region, this is made from six different clones, all fermented individually. Fragrant and purity come to mind with aromas of black cherry and floral hint. It’s a concentrated style, yet the tannins are so silky and it opens up to layers of black fruit. A stylish Pinot Noir which will flourish in the years to come.
