Akarua The Siren Pinot Noir 2016 Central Otago

Varietal, youthful, specific and captivating bouquet with voices of place and fruit, a steely raw energy, very specific barrel use with spice white smoke qualities. There's a je ne sais quoi attribute as well - a certain synergy of floral and mineral. A core of fruit and sweet oak flavours on the palate; spices, white smoke, flowers and in harmony. Long finish, complex and excellent. Best window for drinking 2020 through 2030.
