The Rosé is a blend of 63% Pinot Noir and 37% Chardonnay. A delicate pale pink in colour with lifted aromas of redcurrants, strawberries and raspberries on the nose together with notes of toasted brioche. A lovely creamy texture on the palate with a fine-beaded mousse and a vibrant acidity, culminating in a crisp and lingering finish.

    Description

    In 1996, in a daring and visionary move, South Island family the Skeggs, planted their first Akarua vineyard on Cairnmuir Rd in Bannockburn. The 50 hectare site has since provided the backbone of the Akarua wines. Due to the short growing season in Central Otago, site selection is one of the key elements in making a great wine, and Akarua has a site that is among the very best. Sustainability in the vineyard and winery is integral to the Akarua ethos. Water conservation, recycling, the use of lightweight bottles, fully insulated barrel rooms and energy efficient lighting in the winery are a few of the initiatives taken by Akarua to guarantee their accredited status as a sustainable producer.

    The Rosé is a blend of 63% Pinot Noir and 37% Chardonnay. A delicate pale pink in colour with lifted aromas of redcurrants, strawberries and raspberries on the nose together with notes of toasted brioche. A lovely creamy texture on the palate with a fine-beaded mousse and a vibrant acidity, culminating in a crisp and lingering finish.

      Fruity nose, rasperries and strawberries taste and brioche.
      Delicious, I’d recommend.

    Very pale salmon pink colored, the NV Akarua Rose Brut offers pretty peach and pink grapefruit notes with hints of honeysuckle and lightly browned toast. Some delicate red berry flavors come through in the mouth, with fine bubbles and a racy acid line finishing this sparkler with good persistence.
