Our Rosé is a fruity and elegant wine made from Pinot Noir grapes. Nicely chilled this wine is perfect as an aperitif or summertime drinking.
Richmond Plains is certified organic by AsureQuality NZ.
Nose: Fragrant with red cherry, raspberry and strawberry aromas.
Palate: Delicious soft strawberry, raspberry and redcurrant flavours. This wine has a refreshing, dry minerally finish which makes it an excellent accompaniment to a wide variety of lighter flavoured food dishes.
Vintage: This wine was produced from hand picked Pinot Noir grapes after a warm sunny Autumn which produced great quality fruit and excellent flavours.
Wine Making: All fruit was crushed and destemmed and held overnight in the press to allow for colour extraction before being cool fermented to preserve the vibrant primary fruit characters.
Sulphur: This wine is made with minimal levels of sulphur/SO2/preservative 220.
Vegan: This wine is suitable for a vegetarian diet.
Residual Sugar: 4 g/L
This year's rendition again offers plenty of attractive aromas of peach, citrus and strawberry on the nose, followed by a juicy palate that's lively and fruity. A generous style, the wine is well balanced by crisp acidity.
