Bright ruby appearance with a distinctive pink rim
Nose: Bursting with bright red fruits - sweet cranberry, raspberry and old strawberry. A gentle wave of oak adds brown spice notes and an edge of vanillin.
Palate: Dry, medium body, youthful. The light red fruits flavors dominate the palate with their youthful exuberance. Moderate tannins - quite finely tuned, medium+ length, moderate complexity, balanced and well made (as always with Akarua wines). Cellar for a further 12 months with confidence it will reward.
