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

Tasting: Fragrant floral honeysuckle aromas mixed with tangelo and apple notes. Delicious citrus, rock melon and pear with rich caramelised apple flavours. Hints of Turkish delight and rose petals. A smooth, long lingering finish.

Wine Making: Beautifully ripe fruit was hand harvested in March and whole bunch pressed. Tiny berries produced wonderful concentrated fruit flavours which were preserved by fermenting the wine at cool temperatures.

Diet: Suitable for a vegan diet.

Certified Organic: Asure Quality.

Analysis: Alcohol 13.5 %, Acidity 6.0 g/l, Residual Sugar 5 g/l

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.

Brilliant straw-yellow colour with light lemon-gold hues, paler on the rim.  The nose is soft and light with delicately nuanced aromas of white and yellow stonefruits entwined with gentle floral notes and suggestions of savoury honeysuckle. The aromatics grow in intensity with aeration.  Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has an elegantly presented core with softly intense flavours of white and yellow stonefruits, with subtle nutty barrel-ferment elements, along with spices, unfolding floral and honeysuckle nuances.  The mouthfeel is fresh and the wine flows along a slippery, soft-textured line with integrated acidity lending roundness.  The flavours carry to a long, lingering, delicate finish. This is an elegant and delicately flavoured dry Pinot Gris with stonefruit and subtle, nutty oak on a smooth-flowing palate.
