WINEMAKING Akarua produced more than 600 individual barrels of Pinot Noir from the 2012 vintage. Of these, about one in a hundred were assessed as being truly outstanding examples of our site, the vintage and Bannockburn Pinot Noir. These were the wines used to blend The Siren. Individual barrels were chosen for the ability to highlight the finest elements of the site and to add an extra layer of complexity and length.
TASTING NOTE Nose: Extremely fragrant with violet floral, licorice and mocha notes. Palate: Beautifully fruited mid-palate which is extremely textural and has complex red and dark fruits complemented by hints of oak spice and fine tannins. The finish is extremely long and balanced.
