Buy of the Week AU

Akarua Rua Pinot Noir 2017, Central Otago, AUD $35

This triple trophy winner has a beguiling perfume of dark cherry, flowers and spices, and is intense and finely-structured, with a succulent, fruit-sweet mid-palate. It has mild, gentle tannins and a refreshing and more-ish aftertaste. Exceptional value. (Screwcap)
