The Skeggs family planted their 50-hectare site in 1996 it has since provided the backbone of the Akarua wines.

The grapes for the Rose Brut come from four different vineyards. In Bannockburn the 'Cairnmuir Road' and 'Felton Road Terraces' vineyards are planted on alluvial soils over schist and the average vine age is 22 years. In Pisa the '25 Steps' and 'Murrel de Bettencor' vineyards sit on sandy loam soils over gravels. The vineyard elevation ranges from 200 to 317 metres and all of the vines are trellised with a vertical shoot positioning system. All of the grapes are hand harvested.

A delicate pale pink in colour with lifted aromas of redcurrants, strawberries and raspberries on the nose together with notes of toasted brioche. A lovely creamy texture on the palate with a fine-beaded mousse and a vibrant acidity, culminating in a crisp and lingering finish.
