Bob Campbell awards Akarua The Siren 2013, Thu, 21 April 2016

MW Bob Campbell was the second wine writer in the world to achieve the ‘Master of Wine’ qualification.

His comments were as follows…

“…It certainly shows a great deal more concentration than the regular label with red-fleshed plum, floral, violet and a similar spice and thyme character. More oak gives an extra layer of chocolate-like richness. Surprisingly approachable now, although the wine will continue to give pleasure for a decade or more.”

He ranked The Siren 2013 as No2 out of 28 2013 Pinot Noirs tasted from the Cromwell basin.

Bob Campbell has suggested a food match of Lamb Chops, Onion Rings and Coconut chutney. You can find a recipe for serving home-made onion rings and coconut chutney here.
