Some time with our beloved locals - a little tasting @henrys_cromwell this afternoon! Here until 6pm! Come see us!

Akarua's Bannockburn Cellar Door will be closed today. Open again tomorrow from 10.30am.

Some parting shots of our inter row cropping about to be mown and mulched to assist our soil organic matter at our De Bettencor vineyard. Mustard, radish, plantain, clover and grass have all done exceptionally well with the extra rain we have received as a region this season.

More exploitation, I mean “helping” from our kids at #southislandwineandfoodfestival on Saturday at #Christchurch. A great day meeting lots of wonderful people. Pinot Rouge was a huge hit and sold out! #familyroadtrip #akaruawines #nzwine #centralotagopinotnoir #akaruabubbles

Akarua prevailed once again, taking out the 2018 Six Nations Wine Challenge Trophy in the Pinot Noir class as well as Red Wine of Show Trophy. Akarua Single Vineyard Limited Release Kolo Pinot Noir 2015 from Bannockburn New Zealand. Congratulation on this amazing achievement against some of the very best Pinot Noir in the world. .

Some very EXCITING news here in Bob Campbell's Real Review! At this year's Six Nations Wine Challenge in Sydney, our 2015 Kolo Pinot Noir won the trophy for top Pinot Noir of the show and ... BEST RED WINE OF THE SHOW!
Worth noting that our Kolo vineyard contributes just under 50% to our 2017 Akarua Pinot Noir and around 22% to our 2017 RUA Pinot Noir! Both of these wines currently on sale in your favourite liquor outlet...
Which means everyone can have a taste of this award winning vineyard!

We are thrilled with some very tidy reviews and scores just released by @james.suckling
Akarua Pinot Noir 2017 94
“Impressive, spicy complexity, across ripe red-cherry and plum aromas, leading to a palate that has superbly fresh core of rich, ripe cherries and plums and supple, silky tannins. Pure pleasure. Drink now. Screw cap.”
Akarua Pinot Noir RUA 2017 92
“The second wine from Akarua, this has impressive grilled cherries with red plums and blood oranges. Some gently meaty reduction, too. The palate is very approachable and delivers lots of smooth, ripe and brambly cherry flavours. Drink now. Screw cap.”
