Nelson Riesling 2014
When young our Riesling produces fresh, lively wines which are great for relaxed summertime drinking; however this wine also has a wonderful ability to age, allowing a wider spectrum of flavours to unfold.
All Richmond Plains grapes are grown on our own vineyard. Both the growing of our grapes and winemaking are certified organic by AsureQuality New Zealand. We also run our vineyard with a full biodynamic program.
Nose: Honeysuckle and citrus/lime characters on the nose with some underlying mineral notes.
Palate: The citrus characters follow through onto the palate with rich lime and citrus fruit flavours, some delicious honey notes and a mineral background and a long fresh finish.
Vintage: Fruit was hand harvested with the grapes being whole bunch pressed and the juice cool fermented to preserve primary fruit characters. A small amount of residual sugar was retained to provide balance to the natural fruit acids.
Vegan: This wine is suitable for a vegan diet.
Residual Sugar: 9.5 gms/L
Acidity: 6.3 gms/L
