33% Pinot Noir, 67% Chardonnay

4 ½ Stars Cuisine Sparkling Tasting, November 2017 (NV)
"Bannockburn-grown and chardonnay dominant, the Akarua NV style is all about crispness and vivacity. An overture of toasty aromas is backed up by a creamy palate where yeasty complexity is balanced by lively, fresh acidity. Partner it with an anchovy-rich tapenade."

4 Stars Michael Cooper, 2018 Edition (NV)
"This non-vintage wine is a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, estate-grown at Bannockburn and disgorged after 18 months to two years on its yeast lees. The bouquet is typically fresh and yeasty; the palate is crisp and vigorous, with strong, lemony, appley, yeasty, slightly nutty flavours and a finely balanced finish."

90/100 Decanter, January 2016 (NV)
"Made by sparkling wine expert Dr Tony Jordan, this brilliant fizz delivers vibrant freshness and creamy mousse along with complex yeasty, nutty notes from 18 months’ lees contact in bottle. Fine texture, strawberry scent and delicate citrus notes, nicely balanced."

90/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, June 2018 (NV)
"Pretty green apple, white flesh pear scents, touches of vanilla, sweet spice. Gentle start. Creamy hit of frothy bubbles to taste, light on in flavour but gets the freshness spot on. Energetic though simple sparkling wine. Aperitif kind of vibe."
