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, this stunning 2018 is equally as good as those champion winning vintages!

Smells

Classic Central Otago with vibrant red cherry and 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 sweet dark cherry and red berry fruits. Fine tannins and a succulent long finish to enjoy now through 2023.
