Akarua Vintage Brut 2016

Strict ‘Methode Traditionelle’ with minimum three years on lees and an additional six months on cork before release. 70% Pinot Noir with 30% Chardonnay, only from our Cairnmuir Rd vineyard. A rare wine in small production and only in selected vintages .A complex nose of citrus peel, green apples, roasted almonds and vanilla bean custard.

"Pinot noir-dominant blend with chardonnay that spent three years en tirage. Fine-textured méthode with fresh bread, baguette, citrus, cashew nut and white flower flavours. A pleasingly weighty palate and lingering finish. ."
