Description

Now under second generation leadership, Akarua was founded in the mid 1990's by Sir Clifford Skeggs where he secured one of the finest elevated North facing sites in Bannockburn. The first plantings were in 1996 and since 2014 Akarua now own enviable vineyards in Felton Road and Lowburn. Rua Pinot Noir has become a benchmark for Otago Pinot Noir lovers sub-$25 so it is no surprise it impresses the wine judges as well. With 5 Trophies and 12 Gold Medals across the last 5 vintages. Unsurprisingly it is now under strict allocations.

Smells

Classic Central Otago aromas with vibrant red cherry, lifted berry fruits with soft spicy tones and florals

Tastes

Aged for 7 months in 100% French Oak, but only 10% new so it brings a soft spice and warming charring undercurrent that doesn't overpower the luscious dark cherry and red berry fruits. Fine tannins which build adding to the succulent, long finish, enjoy now through 2024.
