Winery notes (2011 Vintage)
"The nose displays depth and elegance with subtle hints of sea shell and citrus. A captivating long fine palate with flavour’s of citrus and brioche enhanced by toasty, nutty and yeasty notes, leading a long crisp brut finish. Akarua Vintage Brut 2011 is a wine of character and complexity. 61% Pinot Noir, 39% Chardonnay."
90/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2011 Vintage)
“A lovely, fresh bouquet of citrus then stone fruits & grapefruit, white peach and red apple, medium autolysis and complexity, light toasty quality. On the palate - very lively on the palate with a full mousse, flavours of white peach and red apple, light leesy autolysis, smooth almost creamy texture, fine bubble and lengthy finish. Seems to be only just beginning to integrate, lengthy finish and well made.”
5 Stars & Top 10 Cuisine Sparkling Tasting, November 2017 (2011 Vintage)
"Central Otago has a place at the top table thanks to this finely crafted specimen. Fine, toasty scents lead through to a palate offering red apple and lemon flavours. “A wonderful juxtaposition of flavour, poise and finesse,” opined John Belsham.
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2011 Vintage)
"The 2011 vintage is a pale, light and vivacious blend of Pinot Noir (61 per cent) and Chardonnay (39 per cent), estate-grown at Bannockburn and disgorged after a minimum of three years on its yeast lees. It has a yeasty bouquet and crisp, racy palate, showing good complexity."
