Akarua, Pinot Noir 2021


Grape Variety

  • Pinot Noir


  • 10 to 12 months in oak barrels


In Maori, the name 'Akarua' means two grape varieties. Pinot noir and Chardonnay, the two varieties first planted on the estate in 1996 by Sir Clifford Skeggs. They now represent 78.5% and 2% of the plots respectively, with a small amount of Pinot Gris and Riesling completing the offer. Drawing on the know-how of the local teams and its international winemaking expertise, Edmond de Rothschild Heritage's ambition is to maximise Akarua's exceptional potential to produce the country's finest pinot noir from a single estate, to create elegant wines and exceptional vintages and to become the New Zealand benchmark for the national and international markets.
