Description

Richmond Plains Pinot Gris is a soft, subtle, fruity and elegant wine with fine structure. This approachability makes it an excellent match for many different foods and cooking styles from spicy dishes to grilled seafood.

Tasting: Fragrant floral honeysuckle aromas mixed with pear, apple and spicy notes. Delicious citrus, rock melon and pear with rich caramelised apple flavours. A smooth, long lingering finish.

Vintage: Beautifully ripe fruit was hand harvested at the end of March. 26% of the wine was fermented with wild yeast for 4 months. The lees were stirred every 3 weeks to add complexity and texture.

Diet: This wine is suitable for a vegan diet.

Elegantly expressed, the bouquet shows peach, feijoa, mango and floral characters with subtle spicy complexity. The palate is ripe and nicely weighted, delivering appealing fruit flavours backed by bright acidity. An immediately appealing wine with juicy fruit flavours.
