Central Otago "Bannockburn" Pinot Noir 2013, Akarua

Tasted after the 2015 Bannockburn from Akarua this 2013 edition shows excellent evolution supported by ageing in new and one year old French barriques and 10% whole bunch fermentation. A very satisfying nose of black cherry, strawberry and vanilla. There's a buttery aspect reminiscent of a fruit crumble. Fresh and ripe cherry on the palate. Good length, quite rich. Medium minus tannins. This is a very pleasant wine to drink for a pinot noir hedonist!
