Akitu Pinot Noir Blanc 2023 750ml

Light straw yellow with a rose gold hue.


Complex festoon of aromatics and perfume. Pink and orange rose petal, subtle musk bouquet over ripe stone fruit, nectarine, and apricot blossom. There is an expansion of pistachio dust on wet slate, hints of camomile and marigold adding layers of earthy florals. A distant note of amaranth and cinnamon lead you to the top of the haystack, near the roof of the hay shed on a summer afternoon, a touch halcyon perhaps.


While there is plenty of fruit there is a distinct savoury almost saline presence to the palate of this wine. Tight and crunchy entry with a long and abundant persistence. Ripe quince and custard apple and a hint of feijoa, leads to grapefruit and mandarin with notes of kaffir lime leaf folding through cinnamon and baking spices.   Unique volume and textural power with supple acid tension giving way to a very long and silky finish. Hints of wild strawberry and white cranberry linger well after the tactile effect has dissipated.


White anchovies and grilled squid on the Barcelona waterfront would seem ideal.
