VINTAGE 2015

Growing Degree Days: 940 GDD.
Growing conditions: Cool and unsettled spring conditions meant a slightly later bud burst and slow vine growth early in the season. Fortunately, things stabilised and warmed in time for flowering in mid-December. Late summer we had relatively moderate daytime temperatures, but with excellent diurnal temperatures (warm days, cool nights). A cool drawn out finish gave us a long slow ripening and increased flavour intensity

BLEND SELECTION

Akarua produced more than 700 individual barrels of Pinot Noir from the 2015 vintage. Of these, less than 1% were considered to be outstanding examples of our home site on Cairnmuir Road, reflecting everything we love about Bannockburn. These were the wines used to blend The Siren.

Five individual barrels were blended for their completeness, for their ability to highlight the finest elements of the Cairnmuir Road end of Bannockburn and to add extra layers of complexity and length.

TASTING NOTES

Deep ruby, bright clarity.

Extremely fragrant with violet florals, liquorice and mocha notes.

Beautifully fruited mid-palate which is extremely textural and has complex dark fruits complemented by hints of oak spice and fine tannins. The finish is extremely long and balanced.
