    Akarua Rua Pinot Noir is the third tier label in Akarua’s impressive Pinot Noir line-up – but boy does this little brother punch above its weight!

    Akarua, run by the Skeggs family, are the largest privately owned single estate vineyard in Central Otago. Sir Clifford Skeggs chucked vines into the ground here in 1996. It’s fair to see if Central Otago Pinot is your digs, you’ve probably heard of this name.

    Soft, supple, and savoury Otago Pinot packed with juicy, bright red fruit flavours. Ready to go now with duck, lamb and game meat dishes.
