Meniscus Wines | Akaroa – New Zealand

Akaroa Chines

Meniscus Wines

The wine is grown on the hillside off Lighthouse Rd on the south side of Akaroa overlooking the township. The vineyard is readily visible from the town as well as the Main and French Bay wharves. The grape varieties grown are Riesling, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. The wines reflect the wines from Alsace in the NE of France. Vintages from 2009 onwards are available. The 2014 Pinot Noir has a bold light cherry colour, aromas of the forest floor and ripe forest berries with a hint of cocoa on the finish. NZ$30 per bottle.
