Rua is made in a lighter more approachable style than the Akarua Pinot, it is an excellent introduction to the Akarua wines. This wine displays lifted perfumes of Christmas cake spices along with bramble, lavender and wild thyme. The palate is vibrant and concentrated with a red berry fruit character and darker notes of blackberries and black cherries. Soft silken tannins, a bright structural acidity and stony mineral thread linger on the 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.

    Rua is made in a lighter more approachable style than the Akarua Pinot, it is an excellent introduction to the Akarua wines. This wine displays lifted perfumes of Christmas cake spices along with bramble, lavender and wild thyme. The palate is vibrant and concentrated with a red berry fruit character and darker notes of blackberries and black cherries. Soft silken tannins, a bright structural acidity and stony mineral thread linger on the finish.

      Medium tawny-purple colour. Deeper colour than usual. Cherry and some acid on the nose – spice. Red / dark cherry. Lots of body.
