Deep and bright ruby in colour, this wine has a complex nose of red plums, black cherries and vintage roses, with notes of wild thyme, brambles and crushed herbs. The palate structure is rich and concentrated, the acids are juicy yet fine, and the supple tannins enhance a long spice-laden finish of star anise, fennel seeds and Szechuan pepper. Try pairing with a spcied duck with spring vegetables.

    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.

    Deep and bright ruby in colour, this wine has a complex nose of red plums, black cherries and vintage roses, with notes of wild thyme, brambles and crushed herbs. The palate structure is rich and concentrated, the acids are juicy yet fine, and the supple tannins enhance a long spice-laden finish of star anise, fennel seeds and Szechuan pepper. Try pairing with a spcied duck with spring vegetables.
