Description

Central Otago’s two main grape varieties are Pinot Noir and Chardonnay – the same two grapes that are most common in Champagne… it is therefore no wonder that a lot of great Methode Traditionnelle comes out of Central Otago. Akarua produce a beautiful Gold Medal winning Methode with Chardonnay (67%) and Pinot Noir, the fruit comes off low yielding old vines with impressive fruit weight and concentration, the wine is then blended with 15% base wine (reserve cuvee) which has been aged for several years in French oak. This is impressive, yet affordable Methode that will give many big champagne brands a run for their money.

Tastes
