WINERY INFORMATION

‘Akitu’ means the highest point in the Maori language. Hawkesbury Estates Ltd. has chosen this name for its wines because the estate’s picturesque vineyard is situated 380 metres above sea level, in Central Otago. The vineyard was planted in the year 2002, and is entirely dedicated to the Pinot Noir grape variety. The winery won the prestigious New Zealand Pinot Noir and International Sustainable trophies for its 2014 wine, at the renowned International Wine Challenge.

TASTING NOTES

Akitu A1 Pinot Noir presents a crimson red colour with bright ruby tinges. This bold and structured Pinot Noir offers an intensely fragrant bouquet exuding powerful aromas of red cherry fruit complemented by subtle floral, cinnamon and anise nuances. This impressively deep and layered bouquet is further enriched by plenty of secondary characters like oregano, thyme, dark rose florals and smoked meats. The complex palate opens with subtle fruit. Spice and graphite flavours follow, and balanced with lacey acidity, make way for a lengthy finish. The wine boasts of fine tannins. Age it in the cellar for a period of 4 to 8 years for a rewarding experience. Team this elegant red wine with Edam cheese, or roast quail/rabbit.
