Gold Medal & Best Value – China Wine & Spirits Awards 2019


No need for introductions here as this Central Otago Pinot is always one of our biggest selling and much loved wines. The 2018 vintage sees the good form continue. The wine making team at Akarua have been well recognised for the ability to make impressive Pinot Noir and at this price point you would do well to find better. Reliable and just plain delicious!


Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Rua pinot noir is an evocative snapshot of the berry perfume and resonant roasted spice profile of Central Otago; from carefully selected parcels with our vineyards in Bannockburn and Pisa subregions. Sumptuous and plushly-fruited, it is a heavenly wine for everyday, with the structure and layers of complexity to impress when required. Proudly family owned and 100% estate grown."


Reviews for the 2017 vintage below…


95/100 Huon Hooke, The Real Review, November 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"The colour is deep (for a pinot), bright and the bouquet very fragrant with dark cherry and spice aromas tumbling out of the glass. The wine has all the depth and succulence that has come to be synonymous with Central Otago pinot, but without any heaviness from alcohol, excessive oak or clumsy tannins. It’s a fine, almost ethereal wine, not overbuilt in any way, and utterly delicious to drink now… A cracker of a pinot!"


4 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"For a third-tier label, known for its 'vivaciousness and soft, silky tannins', this regional blend can be very seductive. Matured for eight months in French oak casks (10 per cent new), the deep ruby 2017 vintage is floral, with strong, fresh plum and cherry flavours, rich and smooth. Best drinking 2019-20."


90/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, June 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Quite peppery, cherry, red fruits, spice and peat. Some tangy tomato flavour here, spice, milky tannin, a bit vegetal in some respects, but does have a lightness about it which is considered. Tannin and spice closes it out, with a sappy aftertaste."
