Akarua 'RUA'

Akarua 'RUA' Pinot Noir 2011 Central Otago 14%
N: A very generous bouquet of the lifted, fresh and zesty light red fruits. Wild thyme laced strawberry & raspberry red fruits, undergrowth and schist. Floral notes too with a moderate oak impact and moderate complexity.
4 Stars

P: Dried herbs of thyme and sage wild and playful; generous fruits of Pinot Noir - as above - moderate+ youthful tannins that suggest 2+ years required for bottle development. Dry finish yet generous in length – balanced and well made.
4 Stars
