Akitu A1 Central Otago Pinot Noir 2017 $59
How sensual and seductive and intoxicatingly aromatic this wine is, will have you weak at the knees and struggling to form a sentence with every sip. Soaring with rosehip and rooibos tea, cherry, dark plum and mysterious red-fruit saturation that’ll send you into an exotic swoon in seconds flat. The tannins are in this little bottle of wickedness from Wanaka are taut, tantalising and unleash just enough ‘prickle’ to the gums to keep you guessing where the textures are going to go. Gorgeous stuff.
