Akarua Sparkling Rose NV – Central Otago

Description

Akarua Sparkling Rose NV – Central Otago

38% Pinot Noir, 62% Chardonnay

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from several blocks on the estate vineyard are hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. All batches are kept separate. Juices are settled and racked to fermentation in old French oak barriques and stainless steel tanks. For the Rosé, one Pinot Noir batch is fermented on skins to produce a red coloured base wine for inclusion in the blend.

The Akarua Brut NV Rosé is a wine of ‘character’. It has a vibrant pink/ red hue and its aroma shows hints of strawberry as well as complex nutty and yeasty notes. The palate has a good Pinot Noir influence, a lovely creamy mid palate and it carries to a long, savoury, brut finish.
