Red grapes in a white wine style! Nectarine fruit and a lightly spiced finish
Richmond Plains Blanc de Noir is an exciting, unique wine. Made 100% from Pinot Noir grapes in a white wine style. Its faint pink diamond colour hinting at its origins. Nicely chilled this wine is perfect as an apéritif or summertime drinking. On the nose the wine is very aromatic with citrus blossom, green pear and biscuit characteristics. The taste is full and fruity with attractive pear, baked apple, peaches and nectarine flavours. It has very attractive tropical and lime blossom characters with an exotic spicy finish.
Praise for 2012 vintage:
**** 4.5 Stars / 90 Points Wine Orbit: A white wine made from hand-picked pinot noir grapes, this is a real charmer displaying fragrant aromas of peach, mango, citrus and floral. The palate is ripe and rounded with excellent weight and texture. It's generously flavoured and highly enjoyable.
