Akarua Cadence Pinot Noir 2006

In stock

Cadence Pinot Noir, in its youth, shows chocolaty, mocha tones which are mingled with subtle oak and earthiness. With time the fruit tones open up to showcase cassis, red currants and Doris plums. To fully appreciate this wine when young it is best to decanter and serve at room temperature. The palate is well balanced with good acidity and tannins that linger. Our Cadence has an inviting mid palate which is matched by its great length and complexity.

Awards:
Rated 95 top 5 of 12 NZ Pinot Noirs GTW Oct 2008

Bob Campbell MW “It has greater oak influence and more tannins than the second label, Gullies, in a still powerful but more restrained style. ‘Tight, with a suggestion of ripe tannins from what appears to be some whole-bunchs in the ferment. the wine has a hauntingly beautiful aroma with a heady mix of flora, spice and ripe cherry.”
