Akarua 'RUA' Pinot Noir 2021
RUA Pinot Noir is an evocative snapshot of the berry perfume and resonant roasted spice profile of Central Otago from carefully selected parcels with Akarua's own vineyards in Bannockburn and Pisa subregions. Sumptuous and plushy-fruited it is a heavenly wine for everyday, with impressive structure and layers of complexity. This Pinot Noir displays lifted cherry aromas along with lavender, violets and raspberry. The palate is vibrant and concentrated with a red berry fruit character and darker notes of blackberries and black cherries. Soft silken tannins, a bright structural acidity and stony mineral thread linger on the finish.
