Akarua with Matt Connell

Akarua Brut NV
Akarua is very serious about their sparkling wines - and the bubblies are seriously good. The potential for Central Otago sparkling wines is well recognised and Akarua has certainly realised this.  Dr Tony Jordan, Australasia's sparkling wine guru has also come on board.
The NV Brut is a blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. A good balance between fruit and yeastiness with a touch of earthy savouriness. A nice fine bead and good persistence on the long finish.  
Retail $33.99    Special $26.99

Akarua NV Rose
A very light onion skin pink, this shows delicate fruit flavours on the nose, but the palate carries plenty of power. Beautifu;ll balance with great length and persistence. Easy to see why this has won so many awards including Trophy at the recent Spiegelau Show.
Retail $35.99    Special $30.99

Akarua Chardonnay 2012
Fully barrel fermented (10% new oak), but this is more about fruit and texture. Citrus and rockmelon notes with a touch of spice and cream.     
Retail $29.99    Special $24.99

Akarua Riesling 2013
Just off dry with limey citrus and riper stonefruits. Mouthfilling with pithy acidity balancing the gentle sweetness and driving a lengthy finish. Read More

Akarua Rua Pinot Gris 2013
From Marlborough fruit. An easy going, straight up and down, off-dry Pinot Gris
Retail $23.99    Special $19.99

Akarua Rua Rose 2014
With Rose all the trend at the moment, this will prove extremely popular. Strawberry and oranges with just enough savouriness to soak up the sweetness.
Retail $23.99    Special $19.99

Akarua Rua Pinot Noir 2013
The surprise of the night for me. The development since tasting this wine on its release late last year is quite remarkable. A soft and easy drinking style with good body plenty of dark fruits complemented nicely by a savoury earthy edge. Great drinking and a star at this kind of price.
Retail $27.99    Special $22.99

Akarua Pinot Noir 2012
Beautiful and dark on the nose. Quite a sexy Pinot with a plush velveteen texture carrying dark fruits and spice with underlying florals, earthiness and a finely judged hint of funky ferment character. Fine tannins and great persistence. 
Retail $43.99    Special $36.99

Akarua Siren Pinot Noir 2012 
A wonderfully complete Pinot Noir with beautiful texture giving a plush grip, soft yet firm. Abundantly fruited and layered with florals, earth, baking spice and fine oak. Each sniff and every sip reveals something more. There's plenty going on and it just keeps giving.  Absolutely stunning, a real treat. 
Retail $105.99    Special $89.99
