2016 Akitu

Akitu vineyard and mountains

We have another cracking offer from Lake Wanaka this week with the exceptional Pinots of Akitu. As opposed to the deep and extracted Rippon wines we offered late March, Akitu is lighter and extremely pure, with dizzying perfume and gorgeous texture. The Estate only produces two Pinot Noirs, planted over a minuscule 12 hectares, and to say that they do it well would be an understatement - raking in awards both nationally and internationally, and with PJ Charteris at the helm of winemaking, it's no surprise Akitu won the People's Choice Award for Best Producer at Pinot Palooza 2018.

Still family-owned, their rigorous viticultural practices and the stellar cellar work ensure the quality of both the harvest and the resulting wines.
