Award-winning Akarua is the largest privately owned single-estate vineyard in Central Otago, with 50 hectares of stunning vineyard. First planted in 1996 by Sir Clifford Skeggs. The Akarua team are focused on managing the quality of the fruit in the vineyard through to winemaking in their winery; giving them complete control from vineyard through to bottle. Bannockburn, the sub region in Central Otago where Akarua is located has been described as the 'jewel in Central Otago's crown.

Winery note
"Nose of ripe raspberries, blackcurrant and struck flint. The pallet derives of black plum and ripened black cherry with notes of wet leaves, charred wood and smoky mushroom. Chalky tannin accompanied by lively minerality lengthens the wines savoury characteristics throughout the finish."
