Akarua 'Rua' Central Otago Pinot Noir 750ml

Multi-faceted nose of blood plums and red cherries; with star anise, nutmeg and cinnamon; and garrigue - brambles, wild thyme, heather, rosehip and crushed herbs. The palate structure is lithe; the acids are juicy yet taut, and the fine supple tannins lengthen the smoky mineral finish. The flavour spectrum finishes with earthy notes from the vineyards - schist gravels and river pebbles.
