Akarua Central Otago Rua Pinot Noir, New Zealand 2014

This Central Otago Pinot Noir was awarded 95 points at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2016 and has picked up the New Zealand Champion Pinot Noir Trophy at the NZ International Wine Show three years in a row.

"An impeccable harmony of succulent cherry and plum fruit, bright spicy oak, hints of chocolate, touches of anise, svelte tannins and a long, creamy, sensual savoury finish. Outstanding" NZ International Wine Show Tasting Notes

"Rich, textural wine that's seductively silken smooth. Toasty, almost sweet, oak leads the bouquet with plenty of ripe plums, dark cherries, violets and thyme/ spice/ anise to follow. Complete harmony is the key to this youthful and very attractive wine whose length is exceptional." Decanter World Wine Awards Tasting Notes

"Estate-grown, harvested from mature vines and matured in French oak barriques, the 2014 vintage (5 stars) is deep ruby, with an enticingly fragrant bouquet. Generous, vibrantly fruity and supple, it has concentrated, well-ripened cherry, plum, spice and dried-herb flavours, showing excellent complexity, and a finely poised, lasting finish. Already delicious, it should be at its best 2018+"  Michael Cooper, Buyers Guide for NZ Wine
