Without doubt, one of the of very best value Central Otago Pinot's we have tasted. A typically Central Otago Pinot Noir, with a core of fresh, juicy red berry fruit and uninhibited by heavy oak influence, made in an early-drinking style. The palate is beautifully polished, it has subtle savoury characters, soft supple tannins and a touch of spice.
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. Planted in 1996, this 50-hectare site has since provided the backbone of the Akarua wines.
