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!
