Description

Akarua Rose Brut Central Otago NV

The Akarua Brut NV Rosé is a wine of ‘character’ blended from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
It has a vibrant pink/ red hue and its aroma shows hints of strawberry as well as complex nutty and yeasty notes. The palate has a good Pinot Noir influence, a lovely creamy mid palate and it carries to a long, savoury, brut finish.

Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from several blocks on the estate vineyard are hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. All batches are kept separate. Juices are settled and racked to fermentation in old French oak barriques and stainless steel tanks.

For the Rosé, one Pinot Noir batch is fermented on skins to produce a red coloured base wine for inclusion in the blend.

Once malolactic fermentation is complete the base wines, together with up to 15% of reserve wine that have been aged for several years in old French oak are blended to produce the Akarua NV Rosé . The red base wine that gives the Rosé its distinctive colour comprises about 10% of the blend.

The blended base wines are transferred to bottle with a yeast and a precise amount of sugar to undergo the secondary sparkling fermentation. They are then aged on yeast in bottle before riddling, disgorging and labelling.

Central Otago, as a viticultural region, arguably more than any other New Zealand wine growing region, has rapidly gained international market and media credibility for producing pinot noir. Pioneers in the 1980’s such as Alan Brady at Gibbston, Vernon & Sue Burgess at Alexandra and Rolf & Lois Mills in Wanaka, had defied all nay-sayers by producing serious wines under the most challenging circumstances and this activated a surge of enthusiasm and investment in the industry over the next two decades.

Akarua has never been in such a strong position as it is today under second generation family leadership of David Skeggs at the helm of the business, with award winning winemaker Andrew Keenleyside heading the winemaking team. The complete Akarua portfolio now consists of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Rosé, Riesling and Sparkling Wine. Akarua released their Sparkling Wine range in 2011 under the supervision of renowned sparkling wine specialist ‘Tony Jordan’. Since their release, the Akarua Sparkling Wine range has been awarded numerous trophies and awards in both New Zealand and abroad.

Col del Sas Prosecco DOCG Extra Dry 2017

Bright straw yellow colour. Fruity bouquet with strong notes of apple and pear. Hints of bread crusts due to the particular vinification process. Smooth and harmonious to the palate, with a unique tactile sensation. The grapes used to make this Valdobbiadene DOCG Prosecco Superiore come from some of the most prestigious vineyards in this appellation. PROSECCO BUYING GUIDE This is a: Extra Dry Prosecco (12-17 g/l of sugar) The most traditional type of Prosecco. The mellow yet crisp taste is a result of its very well-balanced acidity. It is best served at 7-9⁰C and makes an excellent aperitif. Other styles: Brut Prosecco (less than 12 g/l of sugar) The most modern type of Prosecco. Fresh, mineral and extremely elegant taste. Best served at 8-10⁰C, it works perfectly as an accompaniment to seafood and vegetable-based dishes. Dry Prosecco (17-32 g/l of sugar) The less common type of Prosecco. The natural sweetness highlights the wine’s fruitiness and creates a refreshingly tangy yet soft flavour. Best served at 7-9⁰C, try it with dry pastries and spicy dishes.

Spagnol Prosecco DOCG Frizzante Lo Spago 2017

The colour is bright straw yellow and it has the light and soft perlage typical of Frizzante wines. The nose senses a bouquet of apple and floral notes of acacia and wisteria. The taste is fresh and very typical, with good acidity balanced by tatantalizing sapidity or an almost salty minerality. This wine is closely linked to the traditions of this territory and characterised by the typical “twine knot”. The cork is fixed to the bottle neck with twine, a procedure which is still done today by hand, just as it has been done for generations by the farming families of this area.
