2021 Akitu Pinot Noir Blanc Central Otago

SKU #1570849 92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The Pinot Noir Blanc was first created as a blanc de noirs in 2019, inspired by a bottle from the Ahr, Germany. Having been delicately handled and whole-bunch-pressed to minimize color, the 2021 has a very delicate peach hue. This wine is round and weighty with full mid-palate texture, partly due to a small percentage that undergoes malo in barrel, plus a higher percentage of press juice as well as more time on lees. There's plenty of interest aromatically: red cherry and nectarine flavors are followed by pear and florals on the clean, balanced finish. A serious, food-worthy middle ground between white and rosé. Akitu doubled production in 2021 due to high demand. Inner quote mark (3/2022)

Outer quote mark This has a pale rose-gold tinge with aromas of raspberries, pomegranates, sliced apples, lemon curd and fresh herbs. It’s medium-bodied with fresh acidity and a round, creamy palate. Juicy and fruity. Like a delicate rosé. Drink now. Inner quote mark (3/2022)

The Akitu Pinot Noir Blanc has an alluring nose of candied red fruit, watermelon, kumquats, and dried savory herbs in the forefront. Together with dried rose petals, and orange blossoms this wine has a tantalizing texture and a finish that is mouthwatering yet delicate. Unquestionably there is something really special about this that draws you in sip after sip.
