Limited Releases / Akitu 2018 A2 Pinot Noir

2018 A2 Pinot Noir

from $45

Unquestionably fruit driven from the moment of opening – gorgeous, rich Central Otago sensations - a festoon of dark plum and rose petal florals fill the glass. 

There is depth and concentration of aroma with subtle graphite, Turkish delight and a slatey mineral lift. So ready on the nose, but foremost this wine is hospitably fruit driven.

Plush and pillowy entry with plenty of weight and texture to the dark fruit-focused core, plums and cherries galore. Very good power and intensity with generosity, cut through with fine acidity and layered tannin structure.

Plush and comforting but with poise – opera, not ballet.

Cellaring – now to 5 years

Food – Any Lamb from Yotam Ottolenghi, some middle eastern influence and a squeeze of lemon juice over the top to get your tastebuds really going.
