Central Otago "Bannockburn" Pinot Noir 2015, Akarua

Tasted at the Akarua winery in Bannockburn this single district pinot is aged in 30% new oak barrels. A deep blackberry nose. Not fully open yet. Cherry flavour. Lovely fruit quality. Medium ripe tannins with additional structure from the new French oak. Pleasing sweetness. A successful wine.
