Akarua, Brut, Bannockburn, Central Otago, New Zealand, 2010
54% Pinot Noir, 46% Chardonnay
A remarkably fresh, vivid landscape of strawberry, honey and acacia flower, showing energy and cool climate acid structure. Traditional-method aromas of yeast smooth across the persistent, delicate mousse, devolving elegance. Crisp and light on its feet.
