"Deliciously accessible" Bob Campbell, MW

Lavishly layered with sweet, ripe, red berries, underpinned with savoury characters & a touch of spice

An approachable aperitif style but also well matched with creamy cheese or lightly spiced Asian dishes

Description

  • French oak
  • Ripe red berries
  • Lifted florals
  • Subtle savoury notes

"Akarua’s entry-level Pinot Noir has always offered excellent value. This vintage is no exception. Bright, fresh pinot noir with black cherry, violet, and mixed spice flavours. Deliciously accessible" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Apr 2021

Bright cherry colour in the glass. An abundance of bright red fruits, and lifted floral aromas, with a touch of savouriness. This Central Otago Pinot Noir is lavishly layered with sweet, ripe, red berries, underpinned with savoury characters and a touch of spice. Supple tannins flow softly across the palate. These are balanced by the wines acidity, leading to a long fruit driven finish. A style that has been deliberately made to drink as a young fresh red.

100% French oak barrel maturation for 7 months. 10% new with the balance in older wood.

The most awarded and best value wine you could find! RUA is nothing short of a show-stopper.
