Richmond Plains Nelson Blanc de Noir (White Pinot Noir)
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.

4.5 Stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, 'This is an attractive white wine, with a shade of pink, made from hand-picked pinot noir. The wine offers excellent freshness and juicy flavours of peach and citrus with lovely floral lift on the nose. It's flavoursome and lingering, and smooth to the finish.' (2014 vintage)
89 Points - The Wine Gang, 'Yes, that's right, it's a biodynamic white wine made from Pinot Noir (and why not? It's done very successfully in Champagne). It exhibits a little mealy richness to the very juicy fruit, with the palate streaking through with intense and vivacious lime fruit, a hint of spice and a balanced, pure finish.'
