The 2019 vintage marks 20 years since the very first vintage release of the Akarua Pinot Noir.
“The 2019 vintage of Akarua Pinot Noir is a return to a generously structured wine of richness, concentration, length and complexity. Vine age continues to play an increasingly important part, as the flavours in the fruit reflect a picture of the vineyards in a complex and delicious way.” - Winemaker's notes
94 points, MS Cameron Douglas “Seductive, ripe, fruity, floral and varietal with aromas of sweet dark red cherry and dried raspberry and a medley of minerality and sweet oak spices. Equally seductive and ripe on the palate with flavours that mirror the nose plus plum, clove, vanilla and thyme. An abundance of fine tannins, medium+ acidity and lengthy youthful finish. Delicious and well made.”
5 Stars & 18.5/20, Candice Chow for Raymond Chan Reviews "The nose is elegantly powerful with classic Central Otago Pinot Noir nuances of black and red cherries, blackberries and blueberries, entwined with dark herbs, thyme, black pepper and toasty oak spice details. Full-bodied, dark cherries with bramble along with dark herbs and oak spices. The fruit is rich and intense in aromas, interweaved with fine-grained tannin extraction, providing support alongside toasty oak and alcohol power. Complexing details of dark herbs, spices and earth unfolding as its aerated. Warming alcohol carries spices and liquorice to a lengthy and robust finish."
One of the more vibrant Lindauer's that brings a zesty twist to bubbly. Seeing as it's from Sauvignon Blanc grapes there are bright notes of passionfruit and fresh gooseberry flavours. It is crisp and refreshing, offering ripe fruit flavours with a lingering finish. 12% abv. Read More
Gentle floral notes of crushed rose petal, a lift of freshly cut pear, and a hint of ginger on the nose. It's a generous bubbly with Pinot Gris characters of pear mt with a creamy mouthfeel. Finishes in an off-dry style with an excellent balance between acid and natural sweetness. Read More
