2015 Akitu Pinot Noir

Colour: Red
Vintage: 2015
Appellation: Central Otago
95(BI)
Some wines just do everything right - taste great right from the start and can age; speak true to both their grape variety and place of origin; are great with food or their own, and look as good on the table as they taste in the glass. Akitu A1 is exactly that - an A1 example of great, elegant winemaking. Akitu is the wine of Hawkesbury Estates Limited. The estate was established in 1959 when the current owner, Andrew Donaldson's grandfather bought a property on Laka Wanaka in Central Otago, a stunning but very remote location. They are still a family owned vineyard and exclusively produce Pinot Noir. Today the estate is one of the most exciting and challenging places to grow Pinot Noir. They have a variety of clones in their exceptional plot on the Upper Clutha basin of Central Otago. In 2002/2003 they planted a 12 hectare vineyard which produces around 60 tonnes of fruit for each vintage, the very best of which goes to make Akitu.

Tasting Notes and Scores

95

Bordeaux Index

A superb nose of rasberry, rose petal and dark cherries. The palate is elegant and more acid-driven than last year, which gives it a very refreshing style. A wine with great energy and tension, the tannins are ultra-fine and delicate; this is a very beautiful Pinot, enjoyable now but it will improve for the next 5 to 8 years. At this price point, it is another excellent value for money from Akitu! B.I Wines & Spirits, Nov 2016)
