AKITU ‘A2’ PINOT NOIR 2017

750 ml

Moderate intensity garnet colour to the edge with density.
Plummy dark fruit with considerable depth and concentration, complemented by subtle airy herbs with a sprig of thyme and integrated brown spice overlay.
Aromatic complexity and density with lift and bright cherry like fruit. These are expansive and vibrant aromatics.
The plummy fruit theme continues with a plush entry noteworthy in its concentration and generosity that builds as it progresses over the palate. Silky tannins and bright but supporting acidity give vitality and energy. The uniqueness of the vineyard marks the wine with a powerful core of juicy fruit that holds things in a fine balance between richness and lightness. Savoury exit with length.

As usual, there is so much to enjoy about this blend as a youngster, but it will be hitting its straps at 3 years with subtle complexity evolving across the fruit, but why wait?

Cellaring – 3 to 7 years
Food – Duck Pancakes, BBQ Duck, Panang Duck curry, Duck a l’Orange, Confit Duck, just Duck and plenty of it.
Salad not required.
