Akarua, `RUA` Central Otago Pinot Noir, New Zealand 2021
The Skeggs family were among the first people to buy and plant vineyard land in Central Otago in the mid-1990s, so were lucky enough to acquire a superb north-facing site in Bannockburn. Due to the short growing season in Central Otago, location is everything, and Akarua has a site that is among the very best.
The Rua is a remarkably attractive and great value Pinot Noir from Central Otago, with lovely aromatic lift and fine tannins, a must try. (13.5% S)
