Richmond Plains 2008 Nelson Pinot Noir
Winery/Brand: Richmond Plains
Nose: Dark cherry, chocolate, raspberry and herbal aromas with hints of savoury, chary oak.
Palate: Red cherry and dark berry flavours with some earthy forest floor and spicy notes. A well structured, fruity Pinot Noir with a lovely lingering finish. Enjoy with salmon, roast poultry or red meats.
Winemaking: The fruit was crushed and de-stemmed and transferred to open fermenters. After a period of cold maceration for 4 days the juice was inoculated for fermentation. Regular hand plunging over 10 days was carried out in the winery. The fermenting juice was then transferred into a mixture of French and American oak barriques for maturation and to wait for secondary fermentation in the spring before bottling in the new year.
Sulphur: This wine is made with minimal levels of sulphur/SO2/preservative 220.
Vegan: This wine is suitable for vegan diets.
Residual Sugar: Dry
