Akarua The Siren Pinot Noir 2018

"A barrel selection of wine made from the best parcels of the Cairnmuir Road home block. Intense, complex pinot noir with plum, dark berry, floral and wood-smoke with a signature of wild thyme. An elegant wine with layers of different flavours. Well-structured with obvious cellaring potential," 95 points, Bob Campbell MW, October 2021

Akarua 25 Steps Pinot Noir 2019

"A perfumed nose of dark cherries, raspberries, dark chocolate, cloves and baking spices. Medium body with fresh acidity. Energetic and crunchy on the palate with pure, spicy character. Complete and fascinating. Needs three or four years to come together. Un-fined. Screw cap," 93 points, James Suckling, October 2021

Akarua Pinot Noir 2020

"Restrained voluptuousness with Black Doris plum, cassis, floral, violet and spice, thyme and anise flavours. Rich, smooth-textured wine that is a pleasure to taste. Gobs of fruit supported by enough acid and tannins to prevent any sense of cloying. A well-made wine that measures up to its predecessors," 95 points, Bob Campbell MW, Oct 21

Akarua Pinot Noir 2020

"A pretty nose of cherries and cranberries with undertones of sweet spices and violets. It’s medium-bodied with crisp acidity. Silky texture with juicy and crunchy character. Pure and fresh with a succulent finish. Drink now or hold. Screw cap," 93 points, James Suckling, October 2021

Akarua 25 Steps Rosé 2021

"Pale, pretty rosé with gentle floral, red rose petal, peach, cherry and subtle spice flavours. A crisp, dry wine that gains good support from bright acidity and fine, peppery tannins", 92 points, Bob Campbell MW, Oct 2021

RUA Pinot Noir 2020

"Aromas of cherries, redcurrants, earth and roasted meat. Some dried flowers, too. It’s medium-bodied with fresh acidity. Juicy and fruity. Flavorful finish. Drink now. Screw cap.", 91 points, James Suckling, Oct 21

Akarua Vintage Brut 2016

"A blend of pinot noir and chardonnay that spent more than three years in the bottle on the yeast lees. Seamless wine with an attractive bready, brioche aroma and flavours suggesting baguette crust and grapefruit. A mellow, silken-textured wine with a hint of sweetness on the finish", 93 points, Bob Campbell MW, October 2021
