RUA by Akarua 2017 Pinot Noir
Winery : Akarua
This Central Otago Pinot Noir is lavishly layered with sweet, ripe, red berries, underpinned with savoury characters and a touch of spice. Supple tannins flow softly across the palate. These are balanced by the wines acidity, leading to a long fruit driven finish.
What a fantastic producer is Akarua. This Central Otago Bannockburn estate regularly wins trophies and gold medals on the national and international front with their flagship pinot Akarua, but the 'junior' Rua also grabs the limelight.
