“The nose displays depth and elegance with subtle hints of sea shell and citrus. A captivating long fine palate with flavours of citrus and brioche enhanced by toasty, nutty and yeasty notes, leading a long crisp brut finish. Akarua Vintage Brut 2011 is a wine of character and complexity.” Winemaker’s notes.
“A lovely, fresh bouquet of citrus then stone fruits & grapefruit, white peach and red apple, medium autolysis and complexity, light toasty quality. Very lively on the palate with a full mousse, flavours of white peach and red apple, light leesy autolysis, smooth almost creamy texture, fine bubble and lengthy finish. Seems to be only just beginning to integrate, lengthy finish and well made.” 90 points, Cameron Douglas - Master Sommelier, Jun 2016.
