Richmond Plains Nelson Blanc de Noir 2011

Rose from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 01-Dec-2011
100% Pinot Noir from the Certified Organic and Biodynamic ‘Richmond Plains' vineyard hand-picked on Flower days on the biodynamic calendar. Pressings with colour separated and blended with Rosé wine, 5% fermented in old oak to 13.8% alc. and 7.0 g/L rs. Bright, very pale, faded pink colour, pale on rim. This has an aromatic, lifted nose with delicate strawberry notes along with subtle yellow stonefruit notes. Off-dry to taste, this is a bright and lively wine with restrained strawberry and peach fruit flavours that grow in intensity and substance in the glass. A light textural thread provides a little grip, structure and body, and fresh acidity enhances the sweetness of the fruit to match the mouthfeel. This is a wine with the fruit and firmness to match charcuterie and rich poultry or poultry dishes over the next 2+ years. 17.5+/20 Dec 2011 RRP $19.99
