Central Otago - Bannockburn - Cairnmuir Vineyard

This is a brand new style for Akarua, created to mark a vintage of extremes – heat, cold and rain. We bottled early to capture the essence of our home block vineyard without the weighty palate structure that extended ageing in oak brings. The incredible nose comes from a high proportion of whole berry/carbonic ferment. I am pleased to see spice and fruit notes which are so classic for our Cairnmuir Rd vineyard, together with a new, lighter palate structure. It is a wine deliberately made to drink young and fresh. We like to serve it at cellar temp – about 12C shows off the juiciness of this wine perfectly. AKARUA
