Description

Second generation Otago winery Akarua was founded in the mid 1990's by Sir Clifford Skeggs, who secured one of the finest elevated North facing sites in Bannockburn. The first plantings were in 1996 and since 2014 Akarua now own prestige vineyards in Felton Road and Lowburn. Rua offers an exceptionally priced dry Rose experience from the undeniably consistent and excellent Akarua winemaking stable. 100% Hand harvested from their 21-year-old, estate grown Pinot Noir vines, its intriguing and delicious flavours can be directly attributed to the diverse vineyard selection across their Bannockburn and Pisa vineyards.

Smells

Strawberries, passionfruit and watermelon combine with alluring white florals in a medley of aromas that make your mouth water.

Tastes

Generous strawberry and cream characters flood the palate with cranberry and fresh cherries to follow. A fine minerality carries the fruits to a dry and lingering finish. Very moreish. Enjoy now though 2021.
