No need for introductions here as the Rua Central Otago Pinot is always one of our biggest selling and much loved wines. The 2019 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 (2019 Vintage)
"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."


Reviews for previous vintages below…


89/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, April 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"The entry-level pinot noir from this top Central Otago producer offers predictably good value, with its pretty floral and cherry flavours and gentle texture. A charming wine in a drink-me-up style." 


16/20 JancisRobinson.com (2018 Vintage)
"Light crimson. Juicy dark-red fruits, almost more beaujolais cru than Pinot! Light, finely textured and rather elegant. Unforced and very fresh on the finish."


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."

    5 star review  Not only do they sell delicious wine at great prices, but the owners of the store couldn't be more lovely. We had to cancel our wedding twice due to covid-19 and they have been amazing in helping us return and sell our alcohol. They have gone above and beyond. Highly recommend.

    5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
